Dangerous Corner


This event has been and gone.

Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser

Robert and Freda Caplan are entertaining guests at their country retreat. A chance remark by one of the guests ignites a series of devastating revelations, revealing a hitherto undiscovered tangle of clandestine relationships and dark secrets, the disclosure of which has tragic consequences. Or does it?

Dangerous Corner is Priestley's first solo play and the first of his plays in which he exploits the theory that there are other forms of time, or Time, than the purely linear one. An ensemble piece with some real depth to the characterisation, it has easily survived the decades since its first production. Interestingly, there are references to drug addiction, bisexuality and even pornography, which would have been quite startling for the plays period.

Directed by Julia Stallard, the production features established New Venture cast members and several newcomers to the company.
