Jamaica Inn

8 November - 2 December 2017

by Daphne du Maurier, adapted by Lisa Evans

NOBODY GOES TO JAMAICA INN… lonely and dark on the bleak Cornish moors. A place full of secrets, violence, and rum that fuels nightmares of ghosts that howl with the wind. Young and innocent, Mary comes to stay only to get entangled in its mysteries. A dark and disturbing gothic tale where nothing is quite what it appears to be.

Daphne du Maurier is known for her dark and gothic novels and short stories, particularly Rebecca and The Birds, adapted for screen by Alfred Hitchcock, My Cousin Rachel starring Rachel Weisz, and Jamaica Inn adapted for television by the BBC.
