The Duke in Darkness

The Duke in DarknessT1406797825
This tense but touching play is the third of a trio of psychological thrillers written by Patrick Hamilton in an illustrious career both as a playwright and novelist (Hangover Square), which also saw him achieve Hollywood success with Rope directed by Alfred Hitchcock. France is in the grip of long and bloody civil wars. A Duke and his servant, incarcerated for fifteen years, plot their escape and dream of freedom. But in this world of conspiracy and paranoia, where no one is quite who they seem, what will one man sacrifice for his chance of survival?
Author Patrick Hamilton
