ROPE by Patrick Hamilton
the play that inspired the Alfred Hitchcock classic
The Venetian Theatre, Hillsboro
“In terms of tight, tense writing, Patrick Hamilton’s Rope is a winsomely effective piece of work…a taut, edgy play.” -OffBroadway Reviews
For the mere sake of adventure, danger, and the “fun of the thing,” Wyndham Brandon persuades his weak-minded friend, Charles Granillo, to assist him in the murder of a fellow undergraduate. They place the body in a wooden chest, and to add spice to their handiwork, invite a few acquaintances, including the dead youth’s father, to a party…all the while daring their guests to uncover their horrible crime. A murder mystery in reverse that inspired the Hitchcock classic.
