Synopsis: Rachel and Edmund, proud of the renovation work they have done to their 17th century cottage, invite their good friends, Dan and Margaret, to join them for Christmas. Later, as Rachel plays a piece of music, she suddenly gets a sinister feeling of déjà vu. Then, as they sit down for dinner, the electricity fails along with the phone line. A winter storm or something else?
As events in the cottage grow ever stranger, the story of its previous residents unfolds. This has a most unexpected impact on the current occupants. A chilling tale.
Characters (2M, 2F): Edmund – 40-ish, Middle-class English accent – has working class roots but likes that he has money to spend and is glad to be able to be showing that. Rachel – Edmund’s wife, mid to late 30s, Middle-class English accent – warm but intense, more introverted than the others Dan – 40-50, English accent – Larger than Edmund and is a close friend. He is a journalist – cynical and a little bitter about life’s iniquities Margaret – mid-thirties up to Dan’s age, English accent – down to earth, more stable than Rachel and not easily swayed towards the possibility of the supernatural. An air of class about her.
