Time: The present

In his first full-length play for television, Michael Gilbert has written a thriller that is not so much a conventional 'Whodunnit' as a 'Whydunnit.' Set in Essex, in a village near the mudflats and marshes, it is centred on the disappearance of a sixteen-year-old schoolgirl on her last day at school. In addition to the excitement and suspense of the story, the play is an interesting study of three age groups, and uses as its background a newly built secondary modern school.

Michael Gilbert has previously written two thriller-serials for BBC television - "Crime of the Century" and "Wideawake" - as well as some nine full-length novels, and many short stories and radio plays. He manages to do most of his writing on the daily train-journey between London and his home near Rochester in Kent.

(Next week: Brian Rix presents "On Monday Next," a comedy by Philip King)
