My Cousin Rachel

By Daphne du Maurier
Adapted by Joseph O’Connor
 
May 22nd - June 8th 2014
Dock Street Theatre
Charleston, South Carolina, USA

"Perhaps, perhaps not. You’ll forgive me for noting that ‘Mistress’ is a word with several meanings."

Ambrose Ashley, a wealthy landowner, is wintering in Italy when he meets a distant relation, the Contessa Sangalletti, and everything is changed.

Based on Daphne du Maurier’s gothic masterpiece of suspicion and mistrust, MY COUSIN RACHEL follows the struggle of Philip Ashley, Ambrose’s young ward, to come to terms with his guardian's fate and find his own place in the world. A feverish story of secrets, deceptions and forbidden longings, MY COUSIN RACHEL electrified readers on publication in 1951. An international bestseller, it was filmed the following year, introducing a young Richard Burton as Philip. Now adapted for the Gate by acclaimed Irish author Joseph O’Connor (Ghost Light, Star of the Sea), this darkly spellbinding classic promises a tale of unforgettable atmosphere in which nothing is ever as it seems.
