Harriet Walter brings George Eliot to bold and dramatic life, through Eliot’s novels, letters, journals, poetry and journalism.

In tune with George Eliot’s radicalism, David Le Page has devised a dazzlingly creative music programme that features 21st century female singer-songwriters including Kate Bush, Florence and the Machine, PJ Harvey and Joan Armatrading. Orchestra of the Swan performs with acclaimed singer-songwriter, SuRie. Internationally renowned for classical, pop and musical theatre, SuRie also won the Offie for Lead Performance in a Musical in 2024 for her portrayal of Annie in Annie Get Your Gun.

Coventry played a huge part in Eliot’s life, and th performance has been commissioned by St Mary’s Guildhall, Coventry, where this production will premiere on 16th November before a national tour. George Eliot is said to have set the courtroom scene in Adam Bede in their 700 year-old Great Hall.
