The Forsyte Saga two-part stage adaptation to premiere at Park Theatre
A two-part stage adaptation of John Galsworthy’s iconic work The Forsyte Saga is to make its world premiere at Park Theatre.
The London venue will collaborate with Troupe on the production in autumn 2024.
In an innovative twist, this adaptation brings to the forefront the female narratives that have long remained in the shadows.
Adapted by Shaun McKenna and Lin Coghlan, the production will be staged in two parts The Forsyte Saga Part 1: Irene and The Forsyte Saga Part 2: Fleur. Josh Roche directs with full creative team and casting to be announced.
The production opens in Park200 at Park Theatre on 19 October 2024, with previews from 11 October 2024, and runs until 7 December 2024.
The Forsyte Saga Part 1: Irene and The Forsyte Saga Part 2: Fleur will play across alternate nights and run consecutively on matinee days.
London, 1886. Wealthy solicitor Soames Forsyte is a man of property, and his beautiful wife Irene is his most prized possession. When he commissions an architect to build him a house in which to keep her, the cracks in their marriage finally begin to show, until something happens so shocking that it tears the Forsyte family apart. Years later, Soames’ daughter Fleur is haunted by the family secret when history begins to repeat itself…
Troupe’s Ashley Cook said: “I am so excited that we are bringing this superb story to life on the stage. To have award-winning writers of the calibre of Shaun McKenna and Lin Coghlan create the adaptation for this world première, is especially thrilling – and with JMK Award winner, Josh Roche at the helm, we are in the best creative hands. As we assemble the full creative team and cast, I look forward to seeing the world of the Forsyte family emerge.”
