Playwright: Robert Kauzlaric
Based on the novel by: Wilkie Collins
The Moonstone, an Indian diamond steeped in a history of violence and mysticism, is stolen from Rachel Verinder’s sitting room, and no one in her household is above suspicion. Join an unforgettable collection of liars, lovers, addicts and outcasts as they struggle to uncover the truth and reclaim the stone before its curse destroys them all. This thrilling mystery, regarded as the first detective novel in the English language, is re-imagined by the award-winning adaptor and director of The Island of Dr. Moreau and Neverwhere.
"Kauzlaric's script touches on the brutal consequences of colonialist imperialism and opium addiction without losing sight of the fact that 'The Moonstone' should, above all, reflect a slightly askew, but affectionate, portrait of a comfortable English gentry on the verge of unimaginable changes." – Chicago Tribune
