Music composed for the theatre production of Thérèse Raquin directed by Gary Abrahams.
Based on and adapted from the 19th Century Emile Zola novel, Thérèse Raquin tells the story of a young woman trapped in a life of servitude and the desperate measures she will undertake to free herself from her circumstances. Forced by her adoptive mother and aunt to marry her sickly cousin, Camille, Thérèse lives an unhappy and resentful life. When Camille moves the family to Paris Thérèse is doomed to a life of servitude and unhappiness working in her aunt's downstairs haberdashery. When one day Camille brings Laurent, a friend, to visit he unwittingly sets in motion a series of cruel and devastating events that will ruin all their lives.
