A suspenseful drama about witchcraft for five men and two women and set in a modern Scottish manse. From the short story by Christopher Rush


The Reverend Erskine has the ancient kirk Session House demolished and replaced with a lily pond. During the demolition work, workmen uncover seven skeletons, one of them a headless legless torso. We discover that the Minister's wife had died in mysterious circumstances; he himself is convinced that the site has an evil presence. This suspicion is confirmed when the goldfish die and the flowers wither in the lily pond. Further revelations follow: the skeletons were buried in unhallowed ground, and the headless torso was one of the Minister's ancestors, convicted of witchcraft ...
