My Cousin Rachel

by Daphne du Maurier adapted by Joseph O’Connor 

Theatre Royal Bath Productions November 2019 to February 2020

Splendidly melodramatic melodrama – much to enjoy in a production dripping with impending doom. Daily Mail

The purity of a Christmas carol sung in close harmony; the silences when words need not be spoken because the intention rings crystal clear, these are the points in Anthony Banks’ direction that resonate through the theatre.What’s On Stage

Anthony Banks’ production of Daphne du Maurier’s classic novel is a surprising amount of fun. Using Joseph O’Connor’s adaptation, the schlocky aspects of the tale are unashamedly ramped up. It has the feel of a nostalgic BBC Christmas period drama skirting the edges of a bodice-ripping pot boiler.  The Stage

Contessa Rachel Sangaletti travels from Florence to the Ashley Estate in Cornwall, home of her recently deceased husband. Her presence in the house arouses suspicion, not least in young Philip, cousin and heir to the Ashley home.
