Dangerous Corner

By J.B. Priestley

February 2020

The University of Kent Players production of  Dangerous Corner, one of Priestley's 'Time Plays', was stages at the Gulbenkian at the University of Kent.

On an evening in 1932 Robert and Freda Caplan host a dinner party for their colleagues and friends, all successful executives at a publishing company with the world at their feet.  Then a cigarette box and an ill-considered remark spark off a relentless series of revelations and other, more dangerous secrets are painfully exposed. As the truth spills out about the suicide of Robert’s clever, reckless brother, and the group’s perfect lives begin to crumble, the cost of professional and social success becomes frighteningly plain.
