OutFox Productions presents Rope by PatRick Hamilton, running Tuesday 9 April to Saturday 27 April 2013. Press Night: Thursday 11 April at 7.45pm.
Party planning can be murder. At six forty-five precisely Ronald Kentley was done to death by Wyndham Brandon and Charles Granillo. How better to toast their triumph than to host a dinner party for the dead boy's family and friends? But with a silent phone-call, a tell-tale ticket stub and a gathering storm, will the boys hold their nerve? Or will the contents of the padlocked chest be uncovered?
PatRick Hamilton's Rope has been thrilling audiences since 1929. The draw of the coolly intellectual antiheroes is undeniable. After seeing Rope on the stage, master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, indulged in his own adaptation to make his first colour film. Prepare yourselves for a macabre tale of death and salmon sandwiches and make sure you catch... the complete story of the perfect crime.
