Compelled to find her own amusement whilst confined to bed after a riding accident, Marianne fills her sketchpad with drawings of an imaginary place. When she sleeps she dreams of her imaginary world and realises that the more she draws in her waking hours, the more she can explore when she sleeps. She draws a house to investigate in her dreams and is shocked to find a boy looking at her through one of its windows...
A milestone in children's television drama, Escape Into Night was adapted from Catherine Storr's novel Marianne Dreams by Ruth Boswell (Timeslip, The Tomorrow People). The combination of Boswell's taught scripts, Richard Bramall's clever direction and Alan Coleman's production enabled the juvenile cast to give memorable and, sometimes, terrifying performances. More experimental than most children's drama series, Escape Into Night's surreal, dark tone and eerie sense of unearthliness made an indelible impression on its viewing public and is still remembered, perhaps with a sense of unease, after nearly 40 years.
Originally made in colour, Escape Into Night now exists only as black and white telerecordings made for overseas sales, the original colour videotapes having been junked many years ago.
