                "The Well-Beloved" is an adaptation of Thomas Hardy's criminally neglected novella of the same name. It tells the story of a sculptor's lifelong obsession with finding the perfect woman which ends in a sexual fixation on three generations of the same family. There are no scenes of nudity, sex or sexual violence. We are particularly interested in someone who has ideas about staging a nineteenth century plot in a way that feels timeless, and lets the strangeness of the story breathe. Freshers are encouraged to apply! Applications close at 23:59 on 30th November and for more details take a look at the Application Pack:
