Waters Of The Moon
N C Hunter
Directed by S E Crookell
15th - 18th December, 1954
It is the week between Christmas and New Year's in a small, shabby-genteel hotel in Devonshire, an establishment catering to permanent guests who are, in different ways,
down on their luck. The hotel is run by hard-working Mrs. Daley and her two children, feisty Evelyn and consumptive Johnny.
Johnny has dreams of running away on a polar expedition. Unlike most of the hotel's other inhabitants,
Johnny is not yet resigned to his fate.
The regular guests have settled into their routines. The dignified Mrs. Whyte complains bitterly about there being
too little hot water and too much 'horrid brown sauce' served with meals. The retired Colonel Selby takes catnaps when
not out shooting birds. The somewhat common Mrs. Ashworth keeps being too heartily cheerful. And the quiet
Dr. Julius Winterhalter, a Jewish war refugee from Vienna, does his best to be as inconspicuous as possible.
It has begun snowing, and soon there is a pounding at the door...
