Hunter. A BBC North production, directed by
LOOKING FOR ALICE....1994
R4, 26 Feb 1994, 7.50pm; Saturday Night Theatre.
With John Fillingham, Melanie Thaw, Malcolm
Raeburn. An excellent thriller; an escaped
prisoner breaks into an isolated house where live
three seemingly ordinary people...an elderly
Ukrainian, his wife and their strangely childlike
daughter. The prisoner thinks he has found a safe
haven, but he is in more danger than he realises.
The play has superb use of sound effects, which
are dramatic and powerful. David Ryall gives a
stunning performance as the old man; a portrait
of hidden barbarity
un-dimmed by age. There is a surprise twist and a
grisly resolution...it stars Bridget Forsyth as
Greta, David Ryall as Albert, John Lloyd
Fillingham as the prisoner, Melanie Thaw as
Miranda, James McMartin as Hoopoe, Daphne
Oxonford as Dorothy, Malcolm Rayburn as Inspector
Pope, Fiona Kerr as Alice. Directed in Manchester
by Michael Fox.
