J B Priestley had a fascination with the theory of time which he used in his most famous play An Inspector Calls and again in the gripping story that unfolds in Dangerous Corner.
Priestley fans in Swindon are in for a treat this spring as the enthralling, classic, 1930’s drama unfolds in the town. The Western Players perform Dangerous Corner at Swindon’s Arts Centre in Devizes Road, Old Town from March 7 to 10 at 7.30pm.
Dangerous Corner is the first play written by Priestley in 1932 and it was made into a feature.
It revolves around a dinner party at the country home of Robert and Freda Caplan and, year’s before Sliding Doors opted for the different path different lives theory, Priestlry conjures up intrigue and dark emotions as closely guarded secrets are revealed with possible tragic consequences.
The thriller stars Adrian Peace as Robert and Shirley Dobson as Freda with newcomer to the Western Players, Kay Oliver, taking the part of Miss Mockeridge. Clive Baker directs the play with Julia Edwards as production co-ordinator and Ray Thompson creating the set design.
