Madame Bovary: Breakfast with Emma
    By Fay Weldon

    21:30, Tue 23rd – Sat 27th October 2012 at Pembroke New Cellars
    Michaelmas Week 3

    A daring and innovative production of Fay Weldon's adaptation of Gustave Flaubert's groundbreaking masterpiece Madame Bovary - the story of a woman, constrained by boredom and suffocating social etiquette, who follows her desires and passions to a tragic conclusion.

    Pembroke Players invite you to join Emma Bovary on her last day alive as she sits down for breakfast with her trusting and talentless husband Charles and reminisces about a marriage spent trying desperately to escape from everything he represents, calling to mind a lifetime of forbidden lusts, unfulfilled dreams and ill-fated love affairs.
