Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again…
Daphne du Maurier’s
Directed and adapted by EMMA RICE
REBECCA is timeless; the book beloved by generations and the iconic Alfred Hitchcock film a classic of the genre. Now REBECCA bursts onto the stage! Emma Rice, the award winning director, has created a spellbinding new production of Daphne du Maurier’s masterpiece which conjures Cornish romance and theatrical magic.
Following the mysterious death of his first wife, Maxim de Winter returns to Manderley with his new young bride. Surrounded by memories of the glamorous Rebecca, the new Mrs De Winter is consumed by jealousy. She sets out to uncover the secrets of the house and a past fiercely guarded by the sinister housekeeper Mrs Danvers. All is not what it seems in Manderley...
Rebecca is produced and presented by David Pugh & Dafydd Rogers, the multi-award winning producers of Art, Brief Encounter, God of Carnage and Calendar Girls, in association with Steve & Jenny Wiener. For more information about the show please visit the Rebecca website or call David Pugh's office on 020 7292 0390. A Theatre Royal Plymouth production.
"The show reframes female experience and how we perceive women and, like her earlier West End success, Brief Encounter, Rice finds the heart-stopping passion in a familiar story but also adds her own comic touches. Katy Owen’s phone-obsessed teenage servant is a total delight." Lyn Gardner, ****
