A rarely performed play from the author of Dial M for Murder and Rope, Interested/complex set design as the play is set in a basement flat with the associated stairs being much used as theatrical device.

When Sam Henderson innocently agrees to deliver a doll to a sick child, he has no idea of the series of events that have been set in motion. When it goes missing, the doll's secret cargo is so valuable that three con-men will stop at nothing to get it. However, they have not bargained on the resilience and ingenuity of Sam's blind wife, Suzy as she tried to make sense of the strange happenings going on around her. This story of one blind woman's struggle against the criminal underworld became a huge film hit when Audrey Hepburn took on the starring role in 1967
