A Pure Woman
a new play by Simon Reade based on Christopher Nicholson’s novel ‘Winter’
Based on true events, Thomas Hardy, 84, has an affair of the heart with the 20-something Dorset woman playing Tess in the local amateur Hardy Players’ production - which drives Hardy’s second wife, Florence, in her 40s, into a jealous rage. Within this highly theatrical love triangle, a deeply moving portrait of a marriage in extremis is played out. Adapted from Christopher Nicholson’s highly acclaimed novel Winter.

“Pitch perfect” Times
In a brand new show, adventurer-explorer Benedict Allen tells the whole unvarnished truth of his most recent adventure – a solo expedition to Papua New Guinea, during which he filmed his journey to visit a community he had befriended thirty years earlier – when he hit the headlines after failing to turn up for a flight to Hong Kong, prompting his friends and family, and eventually the world media, to become concerned for his wellbeing.
Benedict will recall the highs and lows of this awe-inspiring trip, tell exhilarating tales from his life as an explorer and show never-before-seen material from his travels across the globe.
‘Part of history of television’ – Mark Thompson, Former Director General, BBC
‘This is a hugely exciting venture for me. I can’t wait to travel the UK and share my experiences of some of the most testing, but also wonderfully inspiring, corners of the globe’ – Benedict Allen
