Nightmare

A drama by Norman Robbins 16.05.17 - 20.05.17

Marion Bishop, an elderly writer of romantic novels, is very ill.  Katherine, a kindly soul from the nearby village, looks after her whilst also looking after young Michael, who suffered brain damage at birth. When Katherine leaves to attend her cousin's wedding in Scotland, Laura, a nurse, comes to take care of the failing writer, on the recommendation of the local doctor. A series of mysterious phone calls and the appearance of Raymond, Marion's rapacious nephew, set off a nightmare situation which becomes increasingly complicated.  Deceit, suspicion, blackmail and incrimination are subtly woven into a web of crime which is completed by a dramatic confrontation scene just before an ingenious twist brings a surprising close.
