    Drama1991-2000Anthony PageComedyUnited Kingdom

    “Nothing but drink and sex – drink and sex – one long, never-ending effort to
    escape from reality”. That just about sums up the characters who inhabit
    La Vie en Rose, a nightclub viewed one month after the end of the
    Second World War, which only closes when everyone falls over. Judging by
    its bohemian clientele, one imagines that the club, run by Dame Judi
    Dench’s hard-nosed but beneath the surface sensitive Christine, must
    have been in Soho.Read More »

    about this production

    This classic BBC TV production, is a dramatisation of George Eliot’s novel: set at the cusp of the Industrial Revolution, the story chronicles the life, loves, foibles, and politics of the fictional English town of Middlemarch. The plot centres on the socially-conscious, but naive, Dorothea Brooke (Juliet Aubrey), whose disastrous match to the pedantic Reverend Edward Casaubon (Patrick Malahide) sets in motion a chain of events that will change the face of Middlemarch forever. The efforts of the dashing young physician Tertius Lydgate (Douglas Hodge) to modernise the medical practices at the new hospital causes quite a stir, both in the political power structure, headed by the evil Mr. Nicholas Bulstrode (Peter Jeffrey), and the heart of sweet Rosamund Vincy (Trevyn McDowell), the town beauty. Smaller plots interweave the action and lead to reconciliation, resignation, remuneration, and resolution.Read More »
