He still commutes each day, while she stays in the country supervising the shambling handyman and cook who work for them. At first it is mostly the slow pace of restoration that nags them, but a general sense of unease begins to build as the old house seems to be resisting their intrusion. The lights fail, the plumbing malfunctions, a fey neighbor stops by with an odd gift (a prayerbook for the burial of the dead), and her poet husband ominously warns Jennifer that she should go back to the city before it is too late. Further complications arise when they are joined by Richards neer-do-well brother and his fiancee, but it is the silent little girl whom Jennifer claims she has seen swinging in the backyard who brings on the chilling climax of the play in which the real and the supernatural clash with disturbing and breath-stopping results.
