A small cast, short version of an intricate psychological thriller taken from Philomel Cottage.

Woman’s weakness is man’s opportunity. Did Shakespeare say that or did I think of it myself? I believe I thought of it. If so, it’s good, it’s damned good!

Gerald Strange

More about this story

Enid rejects her fiancé for newcomer Gerald and moves to a remote country cottage with him – where a dark and terrible climax takes place.

Agatha Christie wrote this play some years before going to work with Frank Vosper on Love From A Stranger, a stage adaptation of the same story.
