What is currently on at Almeida Theatre (V166)


Brandon is prepared to go to any lengths to inject some excitement into his life. When he and his impressionable friend Granillo murder a fellow student, they place the body in a wooden chest. In a macabre twist the pair invite some acquaintances, including the dead man's father, to a party where the chest and its gruesome contents serve as a supper table. As the horror and tension reaches a climax, will the two murderers' nerve hold out or will the suspicious Rupert Cadell discover their ghastly secret? Premiered in 1929, and later adapted as a film by Alfred Hitchcock.
Author Patrick Hamilton
