She was only a little girl. She lived in a great big house…all alone. Where is her mother? Where is her father? Where are all the people who went to visit her? What is her unspeakable secret? Everyone who knows is dead.
There is something peculiar about Rynn Jacobs, the thirteen-year-old little English girl who lives down that lonely lane, with a father no one ever sees. Busybody Mrs. Hallett senses a mystery. Her son Frank senses a prey. Miglioriti, the local policeman, is powerless to help. Mario Podesta, a lame, self-styled magician, scarcely more than a child himself, falls under Rynn’s spell, and their poignant love story is the heartbeat of the play. In the end, Rynn must stand alone against the chilling terror of Frank Hallett who has discovered her secret and uses it to control her. Her options narrow down as the play builds up to an almost unbearable climax.
