This classic Victorian detective mystery, written by Wilkie Collins (a close friend of Charles Dickens) in 1868, is considered to be the first of the modern English detective stories. In this lively and imaginative re-telling, Nick Warburton (whose writing credits include Holby City and Eastenders), has produced a fresh and pacy adaptation of this gothic mystery in which the servants re-enact the tale of the multiple thefts of the Moonstone. So gather round and hear the story of Miss Rachel Verinder, who inherits a legendary and cursed Indian diamond on her 21st birthday only to have it stolen that very night. Which of the house guests took it? And why? And what are the Indian jugglers doing in the back garden?...
