- Three women in a psychiatric hospital meet for a therapeutic drama lesson.
- Jones, an ex-professional actress, adopts the role of teacher.
- The ease with which she slips between three other "characters" is both frightening and baffling.
- Are they, as she claims, just characters she has dramatically created, or in fact, as the doctors believe, schizophrenic personalities?
- The other two women - Dawn, a neurotic day-dreamer, and Hannah, an apparently "normal" dispassionate person - portray her students.
- From the outset we learn that the lesson is carefully controlled to extract information regarding a gruesome murder.
- Each woman declares she is a trained psychiatrist and that the other two are inmates.
- The suspicion constantly transfers between the three as the tension builds.
- It is not until the very end that the truth is discovered.
