Helen George to lead new stage production of ‘My Cousin Rachel’ at Theatre Royal Bath

Theatre Royal Bath Productions has announced that Helen George will play the title role in a new production of Daphne du Maurier’s psychological thriller, My Cousin Rachel, which will run in Theatre Royal Bath’s Main House from 13 to 23 November 2019.

My Cousin Rachel is adapted by Joseph O’Connor and directed by Anthony Banks.

O’Connor‘s acclaimed stage adaptation premiered at Dublin’s Gate Theatre in 2012 and now returns to the stage in a brand new production.

Ambrose Ashley, a wealthy landowner, is wintering in Italy when he meets a distant relation, Rachel.

Everything changes as his young ward, Philip, receives news that Ambrose has married Rachel and then goes on to find that Ambrose has died suddenly, and his widow has gone. Philip, convinced that Rachel was responsible for Ambrose’s death, travels to meet her in Cornwall, only to become seduced by her charms.

Philip is torn between believing that Rachel is a murderess and a gold-digger, or on the other hand that she is a maligned victim of rumour and suspicion.
