What is it?
OutFox Productions presents Rope by Patrick Hamilton.
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 anti-heroes 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.
Presented by OutFox Productions (Spring Awakening, Carbon Dating), the new Associate Company of the Award Winning Jack Studio Theatre (Most Welcoming Theatre South-East, Off West End Theatre Awards 2013), Rope marks the company’s third production after forming late in 2011.
The play contains smoking and descriptions of violence and is suitable for 12+.
