Unable to sleep, Elaine Wheeler paces the living room of her Manhattan townhouse, troubled by unsettling memories and vague fears. Her husband tries to comfort her, but when he steps away for a moment Elaine screams as she sees the body of a dead man in the window across the way. The police are called, but suspicion grows as they find nothing except an empty chair. Elaine's terror rages as a day later she sees still another body-this time a woman's--but by now the police are skeptical and pay no heed to her frantic pleas. Her husband, claiming that Elaine may be on the verge of a breakdown, calls in a psychiatrist, who agrees with his suggestion that Elaine should commit herself to a sanitarium for treatment. Insisting on her sanity and pleading with anyone to believe her— with her best friend and husband in disbelief Elaine reaches out to her neighbor inquisitive and rather sinister man who lives next door; and the nosy German maid Helga-all contribute to the deepening suspense and mystery of the play as it draws towards its riveting and chilling climax.
