"A ripping good tale"  –Time Out Chicago
 
"They create an atmosphere of suspense to rivet our curiosity for every swiftly paced minute leading up to a satisfying resolution."  –Windy City Times
 
"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
 


The Moonstone, an Indian diamond steeped in a history of violence and mysticism, is stolen from Rachel Verinderís 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.

A world premiere based on the classic mystery by Wilkie Collins
Adapted by Robert Kauzlaric
Directed by Paul S. Holmquist
