Theatre Review: Rebecca - Kings Theatre, Glasgow ✭✭✭✭
Rebecca, Daphne Du Maurier's most famous book, is described as a 'study in jealousy' and draws from Maurier's personal experiences with the issue. The book has already had a successful film adaptation and now Kneehigh Theatre brings a fresh take on this unsettling tale to the stage.
Imogen Sage plays painfully shy Mrs de Winter perfectly, conveying her subdued side well in Act I but really shining when the character comes into her own towards the end of Act II. Tristan Sturrock does an exceptional job as Maxim de Winter, wrestling with his inner demons and the ghosts of his past.
This unique take on the classic story manages to be faithful to the original text while injecting it with a new and irreverent wit. Solid performances from the cast coupled with a dynamic and elaborate set result in an enjoyable production from start to finish.
Rebecca is at the King's Theatre until Saturday 7th November. For tickets and information visit www.atgtickets.co.uk/Glasgow
