Great Hall Theatre Companies latest production is an adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s famous novel ‘Jamaica Inn’ which follows the story of Mary Yellan, a young girl who moves to live with her aunt and her husband at Jamaica Inn, a public house and coaching inn on main road through the moors near Bodmin in Cornwall.
The story is about smugglers and wreckers who lure ships onto the rocky coast, then murder the crew and steal the cargo.
As usual, Great Hall perform in the round, with no set and little in the way of set decoration. This shoot was particularly difficult as the light levels were often very low, necessitating the use of wide apertures and slow shutter speeds in an attempt to avoid using flash.
