Cecily Harrington has led a staid and proper existence. After winning a large amount of money in a sweepstake she desperately yearns for a life of adventure. Enter Bruce Lovell, a handsome and charming stranger who sweeps her off her feet. In a whirlwind romance, she recklessly abandons her job, friends and fiancé to settle in the remote and blissful surroundings of a country cottage. However, her newfound “love from a stranger” is not what it seems and in an astonishingly tense final scene, Cecily discovers the ghastly truth of her new love.
Love From a Stranger is an adaptation by Agatha Christie and Frank Vosper which draws both on Christie’s earlier play, The Stranger, and her short story, Philomel Cottage. Some years before this play, Christie herself wrote a stage version, calling it The Stranger
