The Magnetic Diaries – a poetry-play

August 15, 2016, 12:00 AMAugust 20, 2016, 12:00 AM

A narrative of love, lust, betrayal, The Magnetic Diaries re-envisages the characters and storyline of Gustave Flaubert’s masterpiece Madame Bovary in a contemporary English setting. The modern-day heroine, Emma Bailey, battles with romantic idealism, illusions about love, a stifling middle-class lifestyle, boredom and depression. The script is adapted from Sarah James’ Forward Prize highly commended poetry collection.
