Jamaica Inn at The Electric Theatre 18 – 21 November 2015

Guildburys production of Daphne Du Maurier’s iconic tale, adapted for the stage by Lisa Evans, received rave reviews, and was thoroughly enjoyed by the large numbers who came to see it. With strong performances from the principles, supported by a talented ensemble and an innovative narrative chorus, this was a brave and exciting production with a clear vision. The striking set, original music and evocative lighting combined to make this a really memorable show.

Jamaica Inn A6 port

Mary Yellan’s journey across the bleak Bodmin Moor, fulfilling her dying mother’s wish that she stays with her Aunt Patience at Jamaica Inn is the start of a nightmare. She finds her Aunt a broken woman, married to the brutish Joss Merlyn. Jamaica Inn exudes a brooding malevolence, drawing Mary unwillingly into the dark deeds of her Uncle Joss and his murderous accomplices as she falls dangerously in love with a man she dare not trust.
