My Cousin Rachel Tour

Last Updated on 20th February 2020

My Cousin Rachel Tour to open at Theatre Royal Bath in November. Based on the Daphne du Maurier novel, this new production is adapted by Joseph O’Connor.


Theatre Royal Bath Productions today announces full casting and tour dates for a new production of Daphne du Maurier’s psychological thriller My Cousin Rachel, adapted by Joseph O’Connor and directed by Anthony Banks.

Helen George (Trixie Franklin in Call The Midwife) stars in the title role, as previously announced, and will be joined by Simon Shepherd, Jack Holden, Christopher Hollis, John Lumsden, Sean Murray and Aruhan Galieva.

The production opens at Theatre Royal Bath in the Main House from 13 to 23 November prior to touring.

My Cousin Rachel by Daphne du Maurier, author of Rebecca and Don’t Look Now, enthralled readers when it was first published in 1951 and went on to become an international bestseller. This acclaimed stage adaptation by Joseph O’Connor premiered at Dublin’s Gate Theatre in 2012 and now returns to the stage in a brand new production. The novel was also adapted for film in 2017.

Murderess, seducer, thief, enchantress – or merely a woman intent on survival? Alluring, exotic and unconventional, Countess Rachel Sangalletti travels from Florence to the Ashley Estate in Cornwall, home of her recently deceased husband. Her presence in the house arouses dark suspicions and uncontrollable desires, not least in young Philip, cousin and heir to the Ashley home. Feverish passion battles reason in this classic Gothic romance set in the wild landscape of the rock-ribbed Cornish coast.
