Marian And George [Drama]



Marian Evans (aka George Eliot) has to make an impossible choice – between the brother she loves and the love of her life, between respectability and social scandal, between duty and the freedom to write. Lia Williams and Tom Goodman-Hill star in Anna Linstrum's biographical drama.
