Synopsis of play.

David is recklessly driving his automobile, and Rob, the passenger, is concerned about his speed on the curving road. On their ride they happen upon a haunted house and decide to go in and look around. Inside, they hear a dripping sound coming from upstairs. They go upstairs and find the dripping, but, before they can investigate, they become frightened and run back to the car.

Later, while driving, Rob reveals that he is thinking of taking Susan, his girlfriend (David's former girlfriend) up to the house. She has been upset about harassing phone calls she has received from an anonymous caller. The caller refers to himself as Susan's "Guardian Angel." Rob feels it is her fear that is hurting her rather than the calls. He thinks that if she experiences the haunted house she might realize her fear is laughable. Perhaps then she would no longer fear the phone calls. The boys set up the experiment.

A few nights later, Rob drives Susan up to the house. They go inside. David, who has been hiding in the back seat of the car, dresses up like a ghost. When Rob and Susan come out of the house, David frightens Susan into a trance. Remorseful, David blurts out that he is the anonymous caller. After David leaves, Susan "comes to," revealing that she was only pretending to be in a trance. We learn that Rob and Susan had suspected David all along and had plotted the haunted house escapade to see if they could trick David into revealing that he is the "Guardian Angel."
