"A performance to treasure... The kind of singular, this-is-what-theater-can-be show that doesn't come along every year. The most exciting theater in Washington!"
- Nelson Pressley, The Washington Post

"Incredibly imaginative staging, richly evocative acting... theatrical artistry of the highest range"
- Roger Meersman, The Journal Newspapers

"Fabulous, breathtaking imagery, gorgeous acting... makes you wish all theater were like Mill on the Floss!"

From the Shared Experience Theater Company

For 25 years, Shared Experience Theatre Company has presented visually compelling and moving adaptations of classic novels such as Anna Karenina, Jane Eyre, and War and Peace. Now theyÆve brought George EliotÆs Mill on the Floss vividly to life. Wild and clever, Maggie Tulliver struggles with Victorian societyÆs stifling conventions. But when she meets a man who loves her for her wit and sensuality, her true nature threatens to erupt.... ôShatteringly good. ItÆs a stunning night, which combines a wonderful theatrical imagination with a depth charge of raw emotionö (The Daily Telegraph, London).
