It’s 1932, and a group of dazzling young publishing executives gather at a stylish country retreat for an elegant dinner party. Beautiful and successful, they have the world at their feet.

Gradually, however, events turn a dangerous corner and a relentless series of revelations expose the darkness that lies beneath the glamorous facade. As truths and secrets tumble out, the cost of professional and social success is laid bare.

Dangerous Corner is directed by the Playhouse’s Artistic Director Gareth Machin (The Spire, Epsom Downs).

Running Time: Approx. 2 hours (including one interval)
