Home at Seven is a 1950 British mystery play by R.C. Sheriff. David Preston returns home from work to his wife Janet to find that 24 hours have elapsed without him even realising it, and it is now a day later than he thought. As hard as he tries, he cannot recall the missing day. Evidence then emerges suggesting that he was involved in a theft and murder that happened in the period that he cannot account for.

In 1952 the play was adapted as a film Home at Seven directed by and starring Ralph Richardson.[1]
