Therese Raquin by Emile Zola
Book DescriptionZola's first important novel (1867) is a hauntingly powerful psychological study, described at the time as 'a steamy story of sexual passion plumbing the murky depths of murder, revenge and retribution'. Therese is trapped in a loveless marriage to Madame Raquin's sickly son, Camille. Seduced by his best friend, Laurent, she conspires with him to murder her husband. Haunted by guilt and by the pervasive presence of Madame Raquin, who has suffered a debilitating stroke, the lovers' passion turns to mutual loathing...First staged in Chichester in 1990, Nicholas Wright's brilliant dramatisation of "Therese Raquin" receives its London premiere at the National Theatre in the 900-seat Lyttelton. It is directed by Marianne Elliott, whose recent staging there of "The Pillars of the Community" drew universal praise.

Author Biography - Emile Zola
Emile Zola (1840-1902) is one of the best-known 19th-century novelists, famous for his espousal of Naturalism. Apart from Therese Raquin, his many novels include Nana (1880), about a slum-girl turned courtesan to the bourgeoisie, and Germinal (1885), a grim portrait of a mining community. Often accused of pornography, his aim was to 'tell it like it is', and his reputation is much higher now than in his lifetime. Nicholas Wright's most recent theatre work is the phenomenally successful adaptation of His Dark Materials. His Vincent in Brixton won rave reviews and the Olivier Award for Best Play. Earlier work includes the West End hits, Cressida, with Michael Gambon, and Mrs Klein. Other adaptations include Naked with Juliette Binoche, Lulu with Anna Friel and Three Sisters at the National. All are published by NHB.
