Emma Jerrold: Far From The Madding Crowd

Date - 20 April, 2015, All News Opening Nights Press Nights Theatre

Emma Jerrold opens to the press this evening in Thomas Hardy’s Far From The Madding Crowd adapted for the stage by Jessica Swale. Emma will perform at The Watermill Theatre in West Berkshire as Mary Ann.

When Bathsheba Everdene inherits a farm from her uncle, no-one expects her to take on its management herself. But the spirited young heroine will not be deterred and takes up the mantle with vigour. Yet, whilst she rises impressively to the challenges of sheep farming, it is the trials of the heart that threaten to undo her.

The show will run at The Watermill until the end of May 2015.


Since training at Bristol Old Vic, Emma Jerrold has garnered an extensive list of theatre credits in London and around the UK.

Recent theatre credits include The Comedy Of Errors at Shakespeare's Globe, Emil And The Detectives and Macbeth, both at the National Theatre and Persuasion at Salisbury Playhouse.

On screen, she can be seen in feature films All the Devil's Men directed by Matthew Hope, and The Foreigner directed by Martin Campbell.
