A Judgement in Stone

A Judgement in Stone

Overview

Eunice struggles to fit in. When she joins a wealthy family as their housekeeper the very reason for her awkwardness, long hidden and deeply buried, leads to a terrible tale of murder in cold blood - on Valentine’s Day. Ruth Rendell’s brilliant plot unravels a lifetime of deceit and cover-ups which, when revealed, brings a shocking revelation almost as grizzly as murder itself.

Building on the phenomenal decade-long success of The Agatha Christie Theatre Company, which sold over two million tickets and continually played to packed houses around the UK, Bill Kenwright presents this new production adapted from one of Ruth Rendell's most celebrated works.

The star cast includes Chris Ellison best known as DCI Frank Burnside in The Bill and Burnside, and Great Expectations in London’s West End, Sophie Ward who played the beautiful love interest of Young  Sherlock Holmes and Dr Helen Trent in ITV’s Heartbeat, Robert Duncan, best known for Drop the Dead Donkey; Deborah Grant who has starred in Not Going Out and Bergerac; movie icon Shirley Anne Field who starred in the landmark films The Entertainer opposite Laurence Olivier, and Saturday Night and Sunday Morning with Albert Finney; Antony Costa who shot to fame in chart topping boy band Blue; The Bill's Rosie Thomson and Ben Nealon whose TV credits include ITV’s award winning drama Soldier Soldier.

Credited with revitalising the mystery genre, Ruth Rendell was first published in 1964 and won numerous awards for her work until her death in 2015. Her 80 novels, which included the Inspector Wexford mysteries, have been extensively adapted for film and stage. She also wrote under the pseudonym of Barbara Vine.
