Falconer's Island, a radio play

SYNOPSIS ... BROADCAST ... BIBLIOGRAPHY

Synopsis

When Dr. MacGregor stumbles across Falconer's Island, he enters an isolated community of male loggers and tales of premeditated murder. Falconer's late wife was an invalid, and has been replaced by the young and asinine Ellen. Falconer's son, David, holds a deep resentment towards the similarly-aged Ellen. Lisa is a single woman who fastiduously cooks and cleans in the Falconer household, and Dr. MacGregor tries to uncover her guarded past. It is the two women, Lisa and Ellen, to which MacGregor connects. Ultimately, after discovering the sinister secret of the lagoon, he fails in his attempt to rescue them from their subservience.
