Excerpts from Rebecca

Bringing Manderley to life was the most challenging and rewarding part of designing these interludes from du Maurier’s gothic novel. Part of the text is lifted directly from the book, and part is inspired by the dramatization she created a few years later. We wanted to find ways to represent Rebecca herself, whistling down the halls of the house, and also bring people back to the era of the piece with the use of the old radio recordings
