Theatre company Troupe in association with Park Theatre has confirmed that its next production will be the world première of a new stage adaptation of John Galsworthy’s The Forsyte Saga, which will open in the autumn 2024.
Adapted by Shaun McKenna and Lin Coghlan (who adapted the novels for BBC Radio 4 in 2016 under the title The Forsytes), this new stage adaptation will bring out the focus on the female characters and be split into two parts – The Forsyte Saga Part 1: Irene and The Forsyte Saga Part 2: Fleur. It will be directed by Josh Roche, with further creative team and the cast yet to be announced.
London, 1886. Wealthy solicitor Soames Forsyte is a man of property, and his beautiful wife Irene is his most prized possession. When he commissions an architect to build him a house in which to keep her, the cracks in their marriage finally begin to show, until something happens so shocking that it tears the Forsyte family apart. Years later, Soames’ daughter Fleur is haunted by the family secret when history begins to repeat itself…
Troupe’s Ashley Cook, said : “I am so excited that we are bringing this superb story to life on the stage. To have award-winning writers of the calibre of Shaun McKennaandLin Coghlan create the adaptation for this world première, is especially thrilling – and with JMK Award winner, Josh Roche at the helm, we are in the best creative hands. As we assemble the full creative team and cast, I look forward to seeing the world of the Forsyte family emerge.”
