Sir Percival Glyde makes sure Anne Catherick is silenced.


  by Wilkie Collins


1862. Walter Hartright, drawing master to a wealthy young lady, Laura Fairlie, has to give up that position (and his hopes of winning her heart) when she fulfills her marriage promise to Sir Percival Glyde, a baronet. Some months later Walter hears that Laura is dead, and her grieving half-sister Marian urgently needs Walter's help to bring Laura's murderer to justice. But how, when there is no evidence of a crime? And what can the strange woman in white do for them? Identity theft is at the centre of this classic detective-story play written by Wilkie Collins.
