Adapted by Constance Cox from Wilkie Collins’ 1860 novel, the play centres on Sir Percival Glyde, who is being hounded for money by the sinister Count Fosco. Marriage to the heiress Laura Fairlie seems his only option. But a threat to his reputation posed by Anne Catherick and his desperation to secure the money only add to his woes. Kidnapping, insanity, forgery and seduction abound aplenty in this classic reworking of the text. A wonderful slice of Victoriana mystery and intrigue.
