JB Priestley's fascinating first play deals with the consequences for individuals of taking life’s corners recklessly and making foolish choices along life’s journey.

It's 1932, and a group of family and friends are discussing a radio play when a chance remark leads the conversation around a dangerous corner, setting characters against each other and challenging their casual assumptions.

Exactly what did lie behind the death of Martin Caplan, the volatile director of the family firm? As perceived truths unravel, we gradually learn that each of the characters knows more than they had previously revealed about Martin, his death and the crime. A series of clever twists keeps audiences guessing about what really happened - right up until the final twist of all.

Foretelling themes Priestley would later develop in An Inspector Calls, this gripping production of Dangerous Corner by Next Stage Theatre Company is set in-the-round and directed by Bob Constantine.
