Fear can visit us in many forms - perhaps most disturbingly when it stalks us in familiar or cherished surroundings; a suburban house, an idyllic country retreat, or a sunlit Mediterranean holiday villa. Equally, it can haunt us in the shape of a menacing stranger, or gather in the shadows of our own imagination. This volume collects eleven plays in which every character has one thing in common: each has someone, or something, to fear.
Shadows of Fear is a suspense anthology with a chilling Hitchcockian touch, featuring some of Britain’s most renowned stage and TV performers, including Sheila Hancock, Ronald Hines, Victor Maddern, Edward Fox, Annette Crosbie, Gemma Jones and George Cole. The unsettlingly creepy scripts are provided by Public Eye creator Roger Marshall and award-winning writers Richard Harris, Jeremy Paul and Hugh Leonard, among others.
