A young couple moves into an old house where they are troubled by the wife's reluctance to allow the husband to touch her and by her growing insistence that there is something making bizarre noises in the basement. Their fear turns into an obsessive struggle and a strange erotic triangle, the third member of which lurks in the darkness beneath them. An unusual play, funny and terrifying, about women and men and things that go bump in the night.
