A Daphne du Maurier Double Bill
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 neglected housewife begins a frivolous love affair with a local photographer. What begins as a harmless distraction soon becomes something more sinister...
Daphne Du Maurier's atmospheric short stories about the mystery of love, life and desire are vividly brought to life on stage - a testament to why she remains one of the greatest authors of modern literature.
