When Max and Laura Cranwell discover their daughter Emma in hospital after her disappearance several years previously, her homecoming should be a time of happiness.
Soon, however, it seems there is something strange about the situation.
Emma’s memory is damaged, which may be why there is much she does not recognise, much that does not quite fit.
But why does she appear familiar with certain Russian phrases? Why has she such a horror of a harmless silver bell, of a portrait on the wall, and of knives?
What lies behind the odd behaviour of the new ‘hired manservant’?
And what is the significance of Max and Laura’s somewhat ambivalent attitude towards their daughter?
Set in the main room of the Cranwell’s isolated house on a craggy coast in Britain, some time after the end of World War II, this play by Brian Clemens, directed by Frank Holden, will take you to the edge of darkness.
