This is a story of love, hate, jealousy, pride, hurt, gossip, illness and tension.
25 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

Written by Mrs Henry Wood and published in 1861, East Lynne was dramatized in 1982 and stars Martin Shaw, Emma Eichorn, Gemma Craven, Annette Crosbie and Jane Asher to mention just a few. A beautiful piece of work, East Lynne is an intricate piece of drama written by Mrs Henry Wood, and published in 1861. Archibald Carlyle (Martin Shaw) falls in love and marries Lady Isobel Vane (Emma Eichorn). Unknown to him, Barbara Hare (Gemma Craven) was already in love with Archibald, and had been for a long time. The story becomes complicated, especially when Lady Isobel sees Barbara Hare on the lawn in the moonlight with Archibald in an embrace, and naturally, fears the worst. As the story moves on, there is a horrific accident involving one of the main characters, and this leads to a completetly unexpected twist to the tale! This is a story of love, hate, jealousy, pride, hurt, gossip, illness and tension. The actors play their parts with a great amount of sympathy to the period in which the piece is set. All in all, a beautiful piece of English aristocratic drama.
