SUSANNAH YORK in
York, under Ted Craig's direction, is rivetting as Elaine.
She implies both
faded-European gentility and a sexual friskiness
that she memorably turns
upon her male captor" Michael Billington The Guardian

"the production has a major
asset in York's central performance.
Beautiful with her huge eyes, gamine
haircut and razor-blade cheek bones,
York is flirtacious, imperious and pitiful
by turns...she is also darkly funny" Sam Marlowe The Times
An intriguing and powerful mystery of a woman
herself in an unfamiliar house under the protection of a strange couple.
and bewildered, the wealthy Elaine believes she has been captured
help falling for the beautiful male stranger - surreal, and shocking.
