PLOT: Richard and Corinne, an urban couple, have transferred their family and their neuroses to the country for what they hope will be a fresh, new start. Then, late one night, Richard, a General Practitioner with a shaky grip on the Hippocratic Oath, brings home an unconscious young woman he found lying by the side of a road, At least that’s the story he tells his wife. But Corinne, quite naturally, is somewhat suspicious, especially when she hears the young woman’s version of events. It’s up to the audience to sort out the details and decide on the truth.

CHARACTERS (may be any race or ethnicity): Richard (30s-40s, British), Corinne (30s-40s, British), Rebecca (early 20s, American)
