This play was produced professionally in New York and London, as well as on television. A young couple arrive at an old house just before a snowstorm isolates them. Since her child's death, the wife has been in a sanitarium and the guilt and tensions of the young couple's tragic loss have all but destroyed their relationship. They try to rebuild their mutual trust, but the wife hears voices and she and the audience see the pale figure of a girl. The husband sees nothing. As the snow and night falls, the voices of a happy family playing joyfully grow louder and more insistent until the dramatic climax in this stunning play.
