    Michaelmas Week 3

    The play that inspired Alfred Hitchcock's famous thriller of the same name, Rope is a tense psychodrama that promises to keep audiences on tenterhooks: 1929. Two well-bred Oxford students who, under the malign influence of Nietzsche and his theories of the Übermensch, kill a fellow undergraduate just for kicks. They then hold a dinner party, serving the food and drink from a chest that contains the corpse.

    Can they keep their composure or will conscience and morality strike too late?
