A classic play by Patrick Hamilton, directed for WRT by Paul Stone and Helen Cashin.
Brandon wants excitement at any price. He persuades his weak-minded friend Granillo to assist him in the murder of a fellow undergraduate, Ronald Kentley. They place the body in a wooden chest and invite some acquaintances, including the dead man’s father, to a party – the chest and its gruesome contents serving as a supper table.
The horror and tension are worked up gradually and we see the reactions of the two murderers, closely watched by the suspecting Rupert Cadell, until finally they break.
