Delicate OAP Maud becomes convinced that something awful has happened to her friend Elizabeth, and sets out to unravel the mystery behind Elizabeth's apparent disappearance. But, with dementia clawing at her remaining cognitive functions, Maud's ability to differentiate between the past and present begins to slip away as old skeletons emerge unwelcome from long-closed cupboards. The race is on to find her friend before she loses herself.
Andrea Gibb said: 'I am honoured to have been given the opportunity to adapt this beautiful story. Emma has created an extraordinary heroine in Maud – she’s funny, tenacious, loyal – while also giving us a moving portrait of dementia from the inside out.'
The cast for Elizabeth is Missing is yet to be announced, but as more and more big names come from film to TV (Bill Nighy is in the BBC's new Agatha Christie adaptation over Easter), we have high-hopes Maud will be played by someone jaw-dropping.
