Stanton's 4th Wall presents Rope
Written by Patrick Hamilton, the play that inspired the great Hitchcock thriller
Hamiltons ROPE was inspired by the notorious 1924 case of Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb, two wealthy male teenagers who killed a 14-year-boy simply to prove their superiority to conventional morality. In Hamiltons play two wealthy Oxford graduates, Wyndham Brandon and Charles Granillo kill a popular classmate simply for the thrill of it and hide his body in a chest in their parlour. To heighten their excitement they invite guests, including the boys father and aunt, over for a buffet dinner served atop the very chest where the body lies. Since the murder has no conventional motive, the pair are convinced that they have committed the perfect murder and will never be found out. But, what if anything could possibly cause the murder to be discovered?
