The Agatha Christie Theatre Company has announced that its next production will be a UK Tour of Ruth Rendell's A Judgement In Stone.
Eunice struggles to fit in. When she joins a wealthy family as their housekeeper the very reason for her awkwardness, long hidden and deeply buried, leads inexorably to a terrible tale of murder in cold blood – on Valentine's Day!
First published in 1964, Ruth Rendell has been hailed as the successor to Agatha Christie and the woman responsible for revitalising the mystery genre. Ruth was awarded the CBE in 1996. She has published over 80 novels, has worked in TV and film, and created the well-known Inspector Wexford.
A Judgement In Stone is produced by Bill Kenwright.
