The Edge of Darkness

Written by Brian Clemens; Directed by Janet Courtice


The storyline for Brian Clemens taut mystery drama revolves around Emma, now in her twenties, who went missing three years ago from home suffering from amnesia. She has been cared for in a convent in Ireland. The Cranwells believe they have at long last traced their daughter and make arrangements to bring her home. It soon becomes apparent that Emma is familiar with certain aspects of the rather isolated, coastal house, but why is she spooked by a small harmless silver bell, a portrait on the wall, and knives – and why does she react to certain Russian phrases?

This amateur production of The Edge of Darkness is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD a Concord Theatricals Company.
