Happily married New York lawyer, Dan Gallagher, played by Ashley Dowds (Scandal, Generations, Binnerlanders, Old Boys, Mousetrap, Japes and Blue/Orange), has a two-night stand with a book editor, Alex Forrest, while his wife is away in the country.
Actions have consequences since Alex turns out to be a determined woman who is not to be lightly discarded.
In the end, desperate Dan is stalked and haunted by the tenacious Alex so that his marriage, his job, his car and even his daughter's rabbit are not safe from her attentions.
Where the film depicted Alex as a mad harridan whose hairstyle alone should have set alarm bells ringing, Dearden's play lays more stress on Dan's culpability.
After first meeting Alex, he talks of 'that sense of exhilaration when the hunter closes in on his prey'. He goes on to describe his bout of weekend sex as a 'minor indiscretion' and his chum, Jimmy, seeks to justify male infidelity by saying:
'We`re programmed that way - we can't help ourselves.'
A film that was at least a brutally effective psychological thriller has become a modern morality-play that simply confirms the dismal truth of Arthur Hugh Clough's poetic couplet: 'Do not adultery commit, Advantage rarely comes of it.'Click here to view this event >>
