THERE’S mystery and romance in My Cousin Rachel at Kenilworth’s Talisman Theatre.
Written by Diana Morgan and based on the 1951 novel by Daphne du Maurier, My Cousin Rachel is set in the nineteenth century on a large Cornish estate.
Orphaned at an early age, Philip Ashley is raised by his benevolent cousin, Ambrose. Resolutely single, Ambrose delights in making Philip his heir, knowing he will treasure his beautiful Cornish estate. But Philip’s world is shattered when Ambrose sets off on a trip to Florence. There he falls in love and marries – and then dies suddenly in suspicious circumstances.
Before long, the new widow – Philip’s cousin Rachel – arrives in England. Despite himself, Philip is drawn to this beautiful, mysterious woman. But could she have masterminded Ambrose’s death?
The production runs from April 16 to 21.
