Mary Summers lives in a constant state of fear--fear that threatens to become panic when her husband goes away on a business trip for a week. She's all alone in a large house when she hears a crash near the back door. Soon she's face to face with the man who has just broken in--a man she soon realizes is an escaped mental patient.
Did You Know?
Good evening, friends and others. Tonight... Madam, some of our audience are having difficulty in seeing. Would you mind?

Thank you. On the theory that what was good enough for Shakespeare is good enough for us, we planned to open tonight's play with a maid soliloquizing as she dusts. Unfortunately, tonight happens to be the maid's night out. I'm expecting an important call.
It must be Scotland Yard calling.
Yes? Thank ...
