"Stonecroft" combines a sense of the supernatural, the uncanny and the crime thriller. During one act, the play explores the status of a couple's relationship, their dependancy on modern technology and bourgeoisie comforts. When these are removed and the pair are threatened with new elements beyond their control, we see an unsettling change and their reaction creates further drama and suspense.
The play takes place over the course of one evening. Some travellers find themselves stuck in a remote cottage and as the evening unfolds, their relationship begins to breakdown as strange events occur and the true nature of the building's past is revealed.
