For the mere sake of adventure, danger, and the “fun of the thing,” Wyndham Brandon persuades his reluctant friend, Charles Granillo, to assist him in the murder of an acquaintance, a perfectly harmless young man named Ronald Kentley.

They place the body in a wooden chest and, to add spice to their handiwork, invite a few friends, including the dead man’s father, to a party. The chest with its gruesome contents serves as a supper table. The horror and tension are worked up gradually; the guests leave and we see the two murders as they prepare for a trip that includes getting rid of the body.

They are interrupted by the return of the return of one of the guests.

Rope, by the author of another successful play: ANGEL STREET, was first produced in London in 1929, was filmed by Alfred Hitchcock in 1948 and remains to this day one of the classics of the thriller genre.
