"Superb Performance of Zola's Therese ❤️"
This is a well produced and directed performance of Zola's play. The actors are well suited to the romance and murder throughout this full cast.
I am a reader of Emile Zola's works (in English) and wish there were more acted out productions of this great French writers works.
Set in Victorian France, this play is full of atmosphere and intrigue. I have listened to this many times and find it fresh each time.
