Synopsis

 

Two young women who have won some money in a lottery in the 1930's. They decide to sublet their London flat for four months. One of them is going to get married to a young man who is arriving home from Africa; the other is using the money to travel abroad.

 

A personable young man arrives to look at the flat which starts an unexpected and spine-chilling chain of events that plays itself out in a remote cottage somewhere in the English countryside.....

PLAYWRIGHT:

 

Frank Vosper adapted Love From A Stranger from a story (Philomel Cottage) by Agatha Christie. After WW2, he became known as an up-and-coming major playwright as well as a recognised, talented stage and screen actor, appearing as the assassin in Alfred Hitchcock's 'The Man Who Knew Too Much' (1934). He wrote 'Love From a Stranger' in 1936, but died the following year when he mysteriously disappeared off a passenger liner. His body was found off Plymouth days later.
