Totally agree with review by Andrew Wood so won't reiterate! Just to add that as long as the servants can flirt with one another the age can go up as can parents

An edgy, character-driven thriller with plenty of opportunity for subtle atmospheric sound and lighting. The plot has several twists and keeps you guessing throughout the 3 Acts, which are composed of 7 short scenes. The setting is a mid-Victorian house on a remote cliff side.
Cast required are: a girl in her early twenties (the amnesiac daughter, large role); a couple to play her parents (circa 50s, large roles); a maid in her early twenties (medium character role, with some comedy); a mysterious new servant (a man in his mid-thirties; medium role) and a mysterious stranger (a man in his thirties or forties, smallest role, appears in only two scenes).
These roles are quite flexible though; we ended up casting Hardy and the parents a bit older, without any problems.
All in all a good, tight thriller with plenty to occupy the actors, crew and audience, and plenty of scope for direction.
