This theater is very small and steep; might be difficult to navigate for anyone with mobility issues.

It is always amazing what the Lifeline Theatre can do with this adaptations. Well written, well acted and a lot of fun to watch - and a great set design for such an intimate space.

My spouse would give it 5 stars, but he had had a nap the day we went, and was able to keep track of it all much better than I apparently could! It is a delightful mystery/whodunit tale from a contemporary of Dickens. There are many characters...continued

The Moonstone

A world premiere based on the classic mystery by Wilkie Collins

Adapted by Robert Kauzlaric

Directed by Paul S. Holmquist

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.
