Shrubs of broom grow black and twisted, As if by Devil's fingers, And the wind that never ceases, Like a chorus from the dead. Those who lived here it's for certain, would grow dark and tortured too. In Jamaica Inn, at the heart of the bleak Bodmin Moor, young Mary Yellen soon discovers mysterious goings-on in the dead of night. But worse is yet to come as Mary finds herself helplessly ensnared in the deadly activities taking place around her. Evocative, atmospheric and chilling, this new adaptation of Jamaica Inn has all the hallmarks of a great adventure classic - murder, mystery and malevolence. Jamaica Inn was produced at the Salisbury Playhouse in May 2004 and was followed by a UK tour.
