Revived to great acclaim in London’s West End and on Broadway, Enid Bagnold’s 1950’s play is not just a witty country house comedy but a psychological drama of many layers as well. Into a Sussex household of eccentrics – the redoubtable dowager grandmother, the disturbed teenage granddaughter with a taste of pyromania, the neurotic, traumatised manservant and the unseen malevolent dying butler, comes a mysterious stranger, who is answering the dowager’s advertisement to become the girl’s companion/governess. But who exactly is the enigmatic applicant and will her influence be for good or evil?
