Story about actress playing Viola
I recall a story--either a long short story or a novel, condensed--by du Maurier, published in an American women's magazine; its central character is a young actress about to play Viola in "Twefth Night." Her preparation for the role brings unexpected and disturbing consequences as she meets an old friend of her recently deceased father. I've not been able to identify the story or to find it again, however. Does this description ring a bell? --Melissa

Hello Melissa, The story you are recalling is 'A Borderline Case' and it features in the story collection 'Don't Look Now and other stories' (originally published as 'Not After Midnight: Five Long Stories' in 1971). best wishes Laura VarnamPosted on Tue 25/07/17 04:31 PM
