The beautiful but doomed heroine is trapped in a loveless marriage to her sickly cousin, Camille. Every Thursday evening she watches her domineering aunt, Madame Raquin, play dominoes... until one day her husband brings along an old friend, the alluring and athletic Laurent. As Laurent and ThÃ©rÃ¨se embark on an illicit affair, a turbulent passion is unleashed that drives them ultimately to violence and murder.
Helen Edmundson's sensuous adaptation of ThÃ©rÃ¨se Raquin premiered at the Theatre Royal, Bath, in July 2014.
