My Cousin Rachel: 3rd & 4th December 1993

Du Mauriers classic tale of jealousy and unrequited love.

Had a scary moment after climbing the ladder ready to descend the staircase with my candle. No matches! Quick dash backstage with nightie tucked in knickers and just about made it on cue ~ calm and collected.

My Cousin Rachel was probably TADS’ slowest ever performance. The cast didn’t come in fast on cues and the director was a fan of dramatic pauses, so we had pauses on pauses. It was like acting in treacle.
