Catch up with My Cousin Rachel at Malvern Theatres.

Without a doubt, she will be there.

A spokesman said: "Theatre Royal Bath Productions are presenting a new production of Daphne du Maurier’s psychological thriller, adapted by Joseph O’Connor and directed by Anthony Banks.

“Helen George (Trixie Franklin in Call The Midwife) stars in the title role, and will be joined by Simon Shepherd (Peak Practice, Casualty) Jack Holden, Christopher Hollis, John Lumsden, Sean Murray and Aruhan Galieva.”

My Cousin Rachel by Daphne du Maurier, author of Rebecca and Don’t Look Now, enthralled readers when it was first published in 1951 and went on to become an international bestseller.

The spokesman added: “This acclaimed stage adaptation by Joseph O’Connor premiered at Dublin’s Gate Theatre in 2012 and now returns to the stage in a brand new production. The novel was also adapted for film in 2017.”

But what can an audience anticipate?

The spokesman said: “Murderess, seducer, thief, enchantress - or merely a woman intent on survival? Alluring, exotic and unconventional, Countess Rachel Sangalletti travels from Florence to the Ashley Estate in Cornwall, home of her recently deceased husband. Her presence in the house arouses dark suspicions and uncontrollable desires, not least in young Philip, cousin and heir to the Ashley home. Feverish passion battles reason in this classic Gothic romance set in the wild landscape of the rock-ribbed Cornish coast.”

Helen George (Rachel) is best known for playing the lead role of Trixie Franklin in the BAFTA-winning BBC One series Call the Midwife. Further credits include Paul W S Anderson’s The Three Musketeers and 7 Lives. On radio, Helen appeared alongside Toby Jones in BBC Radio 4’s dramatisation of Penelope Fitzgerald’s Human Voices and in Colin Bytheway’s drama Departure.

The run at Malvern will be from December 3 to December 7. Tickets: 01684 892277.
