A mystery/thriller by Emlyn Williams

Directed by Eileen Moushey

Night Must Fall is a taut psychological thriller containing all the elements of a classic British murder-mystery — an autocratic dowager, her lonely spinster companion, a gloomy remote country home…and murder!

Set in 1935 in the English county of Essex, the play’s action takes place inside a bungalow named Forest Corner, whose owner, Mrs. Branson, is a domineering — but very wealthy — widow and hypochondriac.

Olivia, Mrs. Bramson’s niece and paid companion, is unhappy and lonely and longs for a life different than the one which fate has handed her. A feisty housekeeper, a flustered maid, and a genial neighbor round out the "regulars" at Forest Corner. But when a murdered woman’s body is discovered nearby, everyone is stunned by this sudden jolt of violence into their quiet lives.

Into this mix enters a young man named Dan, whose charm and personality lights up the room, lifts the spirits of all, and earns him a spot in the household. But is he what he appears, or is something not quite right about him?

From there, a diabolical game of cat and mouse begins, climaxing in a desperate race to prevent yet another murder. The different faces of evil are unveiled in this vintage story of intrigue and suspense. Terror, uncertainty, and a shocking conclusion make Night Must Fall a perfectly thrilling entertainment.
