The Taxidermist’s Daughter in Chichester | 8th to 30th April 2022 | Chichester Festival Theatre, Chichester, West Sussex
The Taxidermist’s Daughter in Chichester at Chichester Festival Theatre, from 8th to 30th April 2022 the world premiere of a thrilling Gothic mystery set in and around historic Chichester written by Kate Mosse.
1912. In the isolated Blackthorn House on Sussex’s Fishbourne Marshes, Connie Gifford lives with her father. His Museum of Avian Taxidermy was once legendary, but since its closure Gifford has become a broken man, taking refuge in the bottle.
Robbed of her childhood memories by a mysterious accident, Connie is haunted by fitful glimpses of her past. A strange woman has been seen in the graveyard; and a few miles away, at Chichester’s Graylingwell Asylum, two female patients have, inexplicably, disappeared.
As a major storm hits the Sussex landscape, old wounds are about to be opened as one woman, intent on revenge, attempts to liberate another from the horrifying crimes of the past.
A story of retribution and justice, The Taxidermist’s Daughter is a thrilling Gothic mystery set in and around historic Chichester. This world premiere is written by Cicestrian Kate Mosse, based on her No 1 internationally best-selling novel.
Róisín McBrinn is currently Joint Artistic Director of Clean Break; elsewhere she has directed many productions for theatres including The Abbey and Gate Theatres (Dublin), West Yorkshire Playhouse, Sheffield Theatres, Donmar Warehouse, Bush Theatre and Sherman Theatre.
