BWW Reviews: REBECCA, Birmingham Rep Theatre, April 27 2015BWW Reviews: REBECCA, Birmingham Rep Theatre, April 27 2015
by Jenny Antill - Apr 28, 2015

Daphne du Maurier's most famous novel Rebecca - written in 1938 - is spectacularly brought back to life by Kneehigh Theatre Company's current UK tour. "Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again" is the iconic line starting and ending the performance and from the moment it is first uttered, the audience are hooked. Du Maurier is a master storyteller and with all the twists and turns, it is a hugely engaging piece of theatre. It has been ten years since I last saw the play but it still feels as fresh and timeless as ever. (more...)
