Rope (Off-Broadway) Story

This revival of Patrick Hamilton's 1929 thriller Rope, was inspired by the case of Leopold and Loeb and was eventually filmed by Alfred Hitchcock. The play tells the story of two Oxford students who attempt the perfect murder to prove they are above ordinary people. After killing a college friend, Brandon and Granillo hide the body in a trunk in their living room and host a cocktail party, serving dinner off of the trunk (and inviting the father of the victim).
