Dangerous Corner archiveOn an evening in 1932 Robert and Freda Caplan host a dinner party for their colleagues and friends, all executives at a transatlantic publishing company. Young, beautiful and successful they have the world at their feet. Then a cigarette box and an ill-considered remark spark off a relentless series of revelations and other, more dangerous secrets are painfully exposed. As the truth spills out about the suicide of Robert's clever, reckless brother, and the group's perfect lives begin to crumble, the cost of professional and social success becomes frighteningly plain. First performed in 1932, this new production of Dangerous Corner updates the action to a minimalist 21st century Environment. The group, caught up in the big money and egos of a transatlantic publishing company, reveal the frightening cost of personal and social success.
