“…wonderfully delivered and perfectly crafted.” —Sunday Independent

Dublin’s consummate Gate Theatre pairs their signature sophistication with Hitchcockian suspense in Daphne du Maurier’s My Cousin Rachel. We follow the young Philip Ashley as he comes to terms with his wealthy guardian’s unexpected demise. Philip suspects his cousin’s widow Rachel of foul play, but falls madly in love with her while investigating the death. Both Philip and the audience must decide: is she a devastated widow or sinister villain? Du Maurier’s spellbinding melodrama delivers humor, lust, and paranoia—a whodunit at its finest.
