A Bourgeois Comedy by CHRISTOPHER HAMPTON
' I'm not unhappy. I mean, I am at the moment, but.... when you consider how pleasant my job is, how well-fed and privileged and comfortable I am, and how easy it is for me to be tolerant and compassionate, it does seem perverse to be unhappy as well, doesn't it? I mean, to be unhappy on top of all that does seem unreasonably self-indulgent, don't you think? '

Peter Cushing as John Cornelius On the Isle of Lewigh, Lark and Cornelius are certain that the death of Dr Hugh Dexter was no accident. From his research notes, they diagnose the ' island sickness ' as the early symptoms of a strange genetic mutation undergone by many of the inhabitants, turning them into zombies blindly obeying some unknown force. The key to the mystery seems to be an apparently simple-minded 18-year-old - Flora Keiry - who saves Lark and Cornelius from being burnt to death in the fire at Dexter's house, which, instead, claims as its only victim the housekeeper, Molly Kyle^ 2: Hurried Exodus
