When a house party gathers at Gull's Point, the seaside home of Lady Tressilian, Neville Strange finds himself caught between his old wife Audrey and his new flame Kay.  A nail-biting thriller, the play probes the psychology of jealousy in the shadow of a savage and brutal murder.  A carefully unpeeled investigation before our eyes brings the story to a pointed ending. 

A different stage version of this story set entirely in the outdoors is also available here.
