Kneehigh is one of the world’s most celebrated theatre companies and their international hits include Brief Encounter and Tristan and Yseult.

Rebecca is timeless; the book beloved by generations and the iconic Alfred Hitchcock film a classic of the genre. Now Rebecca bursts onto the stage! Emma Rice, the award winning director, has created a spellbinding new production of Daphne du Maurier’s masterpiece which conjures Cornish romance and theatrical magic.

Following the mysterious death of his first wife, Maxim de Winter returns to Manderley with his new young bride. Surrounded by memories of the glamorous Rebecca, the new Mrs de Winter is consumed by jealousy. She sets out to uncover the secrets of the house and a past fiercely
guarded by the sinister housekeeper Mrs Danvers. All is not what it seems in Manderley…

Rebecca is presented by David Pugh & Dafydd Rogers, the multi-award winning producers of Art, Brief Encounter, God of Carnage and Calendar Girls in association with Steve & Jenny Wiener. Rebecca is a Theatre Royal Plymouth production.

Running time: 2 hours (including 20 minute interval)
