LATW-Commissioned DANIEL DERONDA Explores Judaism In British Victorian Society

World premiere of Daniel Deronda - An LATW-commissioned stage adaptation, by the BBC's Kate McAll, of George Eliot's 1876 novel exploring the place of Judaism in British Victorian society. Daniel Deronda is an intelligent, handsome young man who has been raised by his guardian, Sir Hugo Mallinger, but knows nothing of his true origins. Deronda's search to find his identity leads him into the world of 19th-century Zionism and the Jewish mystical tradition known as Kabbalah, a discovery that will alter the course of his life. Ifan Meredith (BBC One's East Enders), Kimberley Nixon (Fresh Meat) and Julian Sands (Arachnophobia, Warlock, Room With A View, upcoming Walk Like A Panther) head the cast.
