Wealth, possession, and a shocking secret unravel the Forsyte family in Galsworthy's gripping saga.
In the intricately woven narrative of John Galsworthy's classic, "The Forsyte Saga," set against the backdrop of late 19th-century London, the wealthy solicitor Soames Forsyte and his beautiful wife, Irene, find their marriage strained when he commissions an architect to build a house to encapsulate his possession of her. As cracks in their relationship deepen, a shocking event tears the Forsyte family apart. Years later, their daughter Fleur is haunted by the family secret, and the saga unfolds over 40 years, spanning the transition from the Victorian era to the roaring 1920s. Adapted for the stage by Shaun McKenna and Lin Coghlan, this epic tale explores themes of sex, money, and power, with a focus on unheard female voices. "The Forsyte Saga" unfolds in two parts, with "Irene" and "Fleur" playing on alternate nights, creating a captivating theatrical experience that stands alone or as a complete sequential narrative.
