As a dramatist J. B. Priestley is of course best known for An Inspector Calls. Widely considered a classic and turned into a successful film in 1954. But his first play was Dangerous Corner, which follows a similar pattern of revelations unfolding about previous events that lead the main characters to question their actions and their lives in general. The play consists of a single scene and location, the drawing room of Robert and Freda Caplan where characters enter and leave periodically. The play consists of revelations about the death of Martin Caplan a year earlier, as well as personal revelations and dark secrets.
This is a play that The Company of Ten should be highly suited to and indeed they are! All the main characters are credible and well-acted by the cast. The costumes and scenery are spot on in achieving a look and feel of a pre-war English country house. A very enjoyable and entertaining evening. Highly recommended, running till October 20th.
