Daphne du Maurier’s murderous Jamaica Inn heads to Tabard Theatre

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.

Theatre Lab’s 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.

This tale of wrecking, murder and treachery opens at the Tabard Theatre, Chiswick, from Wednesday until December 2.

Daphne du Maurier is known for her dark and gothic novels and short stories, including Rebecca, The Birds, My Cousin Rachel and Jamaica Inn which was recently adapted by the BBC.

Cast: Kimberley Jarvis, Toby Wynn-Davies, Helen Bang, Samuel Lawrence, Peter Rae, Mark Moore, Matthew Wade, Phoebe Hyder.
