The Edge of Darkness
Welcome to our LlamaDrama website!
Following the success of our ‘Five-play’ evening in February, we are pleased to announce details of our next production, ‘The Edge of Darkness’, which will be presented at The Arkenstall Centre, Haddenham, nr Ely on Friday and Saturday 28th & 29th February 2020 at 7:30pm.
This time, we have something completely different – a thrilling mystery, which will keep you on the edge of your seat. ‘The Edge of Darkness’ is a full-length play written by the master of TV and stage, the late Brian Clemens, who created and wrote The Professionals and wrote and produced The Avengers, The New Avengers and other very popular TV series, as well as a number of thriller plays for the stage.
When Max and Laura Cranwell find Emma, their daughter, in hospital, after she has been missing for three years, her homecoming should be a joyful event. Soon, however, it becomes apparent that something is not quite right. Emma has lost all memory of her earlier life but she reacts with horror to various incidents and seems to recognise various Russian phrases. At the same time, the mysterious new manservant behaves oddly and the Cranwells themselves show an ambivalent attitude towards their daughter. Penny, the new maid, in the spirit of welcoming and helping the long-lost daughter, becomes the unwitting bystander to a menacing mystery, which eventually culminates in horror and violence.
