A middle-aged couple, Mr and Mrs Mackey, invite a younger couple, Susan and Larry, to the suburban Boston home where they are employed to look after the elderly, senile Cissie. They persuade a reluctant Susan to dress up as Veronica, Cissie's dead sister, in an effort to bring Cissie a sense of closure. The year is 1973, but Cissie believes it to be 1935. Having presented initially as kindly and gentle, once Susan is dressed as Veronica, the older couple become sinister and threatening. They treat her as if she were indeed Veronica, insist that the year is 1935 and that they are her parents and accuse her of murdering Cissie after she discovered Veronica's incestuous relationship with her younger brother. Susan protests, but they imprison her in Veronica's Room and the older couple call in the family doctor to declare her insane. The doctor arrives and bears an uncanny resemblance to Larry . .  

The Charity Night (the Mayor's Civic evening) is on Monday 14th January, supporting Yeovil Hospital Charity, the Children's Ward. and Yeovil Freewheelers.
