John Timpson
Peter Woods

by Pat Flower
With Suzanne Neve, Tenniel Evans

She is saving up for her trousseau and works in the evenings as secretary to a writer. Tonight he has dictated an outline of his latest thriller on to a tape recorder for her. Gradually she realises that the central character in the thriller bears an uncanny and indeed terrifying resemblance to herself.

"The play was compelling" (Daily Mirror)
"Miss Neve cleverly conveyed the impression of mounting hysteria" (Daily Telegraph)
"Suzanne Neve managed to pull off a very difficult trick: the way a woman behaves when she believes she is alone" (Observer)
