Interior Set

There is something peculiar about Rynn Jacobs, the thirteen-year-old little English girl who lives down that lonely lane, with a father no one ever sees. She looks innocent enough, but there is something unnatural in her composure; and what right has she to look an adult so straight in the eye? To a tight-knit American community on a bleak East Coast island, she must have something to hide. Busybody Mrs. Hallett senses a mystery. Her son Frank senses a prey. Miglioriti, the local policeman, is powerless to help. Mario Podesta, a lame, self-styled magician, scarcely more than a child himself, falls under Rynn's spell, and their poignant love story is the heartbeat of the play. He comes to understand that her secret is a very simple one; she is different because she sees herself as a person. And if you're a child as well, that is a very difficult position to defend. You may be driven to almost any lengths to survive…In the end, Rynn must stand alone against the chilling terror of Frank Hallett who has discovered her secret and uses it to control her. Her options narrow down as the play builds up to an almost unbearable climax.
Originally intended for the stage, this suspense thriller is best known as a film.
