The Allesley Silas

Author(s): George Eliot’s Silas Marner adapted by Alan Pollock
Company: The Belgrade Theatre and From The Heart Theatre

Silas Marner is one of the great stories by one of Coventry’s most celebrated writers, George Eliot.

This new version of the story, with music by Rebecca Applin, was a sell-out success during Coventry UK City of Culture 2021, where it was performed in a circus marquee in Allesley Park.

Set in the village of Raveloe—a fictional version of Allesley itself—and featuring the local Rainbow pub, this is a classic tale of hope, redemption and the unshakeable power of the human spirit.

A story of an outsider, who in his caring for a child, finds redemption and love in his community.

Nick Walker’s production is re-imagined for the Belgrade’s B2 by Coventry director Olivia Marie, in a new setting by Allesley designer Abby Clarke.
