NOBODY GOES TO JAMAICA INN… lonely and dark on the bleak Cornish moors. A place full of secrets, violence, and rum that fuels nightmares of ghosts that howl with the wind. Young and innocent, Mary comes to stay, only to get entangled in its mysteries.
Jamaica Inn by Daphne du Maurier, adapted by Lisa Evans, directed by Anastasia Revi, is a dark and disturbing gothic tale where nothing is quite what it appears to be.
Jamaica Inn will premiere at the Tabard Theatre in Chiswick from Wednesday 8th November to Saturday 2nd December. Press night: Friday 10th November at 7.30pm
Daphne du Maurier is known for her dark and gothic novels and short stories, particularly Rebecca and The Birds, adapted for the screen by Alfred Hitchcock, My Cousin Rachel starring Rachel Weisz, and Jamaica Inn adapted for television by the BBC.
