The Edge of Darkness - September 2017

About the play

Having been found in a hospital by her parents (Max and Laura Cranwell) after her disappearance several years ago, Emma’s homecoming should have been an event of unalloyed 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’?
What is the significance of Max and Laura’s somewhat ambivalent attitude towards their daughter?
**************************
The play is set in the main room of the Cranwell’s house, set in isolation on a craggy coast in Britain, sometime after the end of World War II.
