A Daphne Du Maurier Double Bill
Watching The Living
A chilling discovery, a terrible secret.
Two classic stories, one spine-tingling evening.
After the death of his wife, a long suffering husband feels a sense of freedom for the first time in years. But not for long. The apple tree in the garden has begun to flourish; growing and twisting into a macabre and all too familiar shape…
While on holiday, a bored and neglected housewife begins a frivolous love affair with a local photographer. What began as a harmless distraction soon becomes all-consuming. As his obsession grows, the only way out pushes her to the extreme…
Daphne Du Maurier’s atmospheric short stories about the mystery of love, life and desire are vividly brought to life on stage by New Perspectives - a testament to why she remains one of the greatest authors of modern literature.
