The Saddleworth Players’ present My Cousin Rachel at the Millgate Arts Centre

The Saddleworth Players’ are currently performing Diane Morgan’s adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s novel My Cousin Rachel at the Millgate Arts Centre, Oldham, Greater Manchester.  The play’s run begins today, Saturday 28th September, and runs until Saturday 5th October.  The performance begins at 7.30 pm each evening.  There is no performance on Monday 30th September.

Philip Ashley travels to Italy to find his cousin Ambrose has died suddenly and Rachel, Ambrose’s wife, has gone. Philip returns to England convinced Rachel was responsible for Ambrose’s death, hoping to inherit his possessions. When Rachel arrives in England, Philip falls in love with her. One small event after another causes a kind of see-saw of belief and disbelief. Is Rachel a scheming murderess or a grossly maligned woman?

As an aside, and not in any way connected to Daphne du Maurier, the Saddleworth Players’ are performing 84 Charing Cross Road later in the season.  A literary must-see if ever there was one!
