Eunice struggles to fit in. When she joins a wealthy family as their housekeeper the very reason for her awkwardness, long hidden and deeply buried, leads inexorably to a terrible tale of murder in cold blood - on Valentine's Day. Ruth Rendell's brilliant plot unravels a lifetime of deceit, despair and cover ups which, when revealed, brings a shocking revelation almost as grizzly as murder itself.

Led by Andrew Lancel  (Coronation Street, The Bill), the cast includes film, TV and stage favourite Sophie Ward who played the beautiful, ill-fated love interest of Young Sherlock Holmes and Dr Helen Trent in long-running ITV drama Heartbeat, pop-idol Mark Wynter who since his hit parade days has featured in seven Agatha Christie Company productions, Deborah Grant (Not Going Out, Bergerac), movie icon Shirley Anne Field who became an overnight star in two landmark films The Entertainer opposite Sir Laurence Olivier and Saturday Night and Sunday Morning with Albert Finney, Antony Costa who shot to fame in chart topping boy band Blue and Agatha Christie Company stalwart Ben Nealon whose TV credits include ITV's award winning drama Soldier Soldier. 

Building on the phenomenal decade-long success of The Agatha Christie Theatre Company, which sold over two million tickets and continually played to packed houses around the UK, Bill Kenwright presents a new production adapted from one of the most celebrated works of the writer often hailed as the successor to Agatha Christie.

Credited with revitalising the mystery genre, Ruth Rendell was first published in 1964 and was awarded a CBE in 1996. Her prolific output included film and TV as well as 80 novels and one of the genre's most famous characters Chief Inspector Wexford. Widely considered to be one of Rendell's greatest works, A Judgement in Stone is loved for its brilliant rendering of character, plot and motive, and is undoubtedly the Queen of Psychological Crime at her thrilling best.
