Far From the Madding Crowd is a tale of Love, Romance and Tragedy where Bathsheba Everdene is loved by three different men, the patient Gabriel Oak, the obsessed William Boldwood and the shameless Sergeant Francis Troy. The drama unfolds against a backdrop of rural life in the mid 19th century. The story follows Bathsheba’s relationships with each of the three men and a touch of comic relief to the intensity of emotions displayed by the central characters.
