Presented by Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch and New Wolsey Theatre.
A chilling and spine-tinglingly gripping thriller by Patrick Hamiton.
Two well-bred young men murder a fellow Oxford student just for the fun of it. Placing the corpse in a wooden box, they invite a group of friends over to their Mayfair apartment – including the loving father of the boy they’ve just killed. Supper is served on the chest holding the gruesome contents. But one of their guests is starting to become suspicious…
Will this daring pair get away with their cat and mouse games?
Based on a 1920’s real life case, this dark classic, brilliantly evoking a jazz age generation, was filmed by Alfred Hitchcock in 1948 and remains to this day one of the most tightly coiled of thrillers.
This major revival from the producers of Made in Dagenham is directed by Queen’s Theatre’s Artistic Director Douglas Rintoul (The Crucible, Much Ado About Nothing).
