Silas Marner | February 2005

By George Eliot, adapted Geoffrey Beevers. Directed by Ray Harris

Silas Marner, exiled from a religious community, lives only for his work and his growing pile of gold. But when the gold is stolen he is desolate. A foundling arrives at his cottage and he takes her in. Caring for her restores the happiness he lost with the money and he is redeemed by unconditional love for a small girl.  

The action takes place between 1790 and 1820.
