Garland, Texas, August 25, 2010 — The staging of Daphne du Maurier's best selling novel, "My Cousin Rachel" continues for the next three weekends. This enchanting story is set in a great house in Cornwall which has been inherited by young Philip Ashley on the death of his uncle and surrogate father. His uncle had gone to Rome, married a young Italian widow of short acquaintance and then died under mysterious circumstances. The widow, "cousin" Rachel, comes to visit Philip and her charm and grace soon wins her friends and the ardent devotion of Philip himself. As his attraction for the alluring Rachel increases, Philip's health declines, confirming to him the fear that Rachel is actually poisoning him. The mounting tension leads to the famous twist ending which leaves nagging doubts as to where guilt and evil should fairly be assigned.

[ Left: Gregory Phillips as Nicholas Kendall and Kristen DiFrancesco as Louise Kendall ]
