1st Night Photos: Almeida Ropes in the Stars

By • West End
Roger Michell's revival of Patrick Hamilton’s classic thriller Rope opened at the Almeida Theatre last night (16 December 2009, previews from 10 December), with a cast led by Bertie Carvel, Blake Ritson and Alex Waldmann.

Said to be inspired by the real life murder of a young boy in 1920 by two University of Chicago students, Leopold and Loeb, Hamilton's 1929 thriller is set in a Mayfair apartment.

Wyndham Brandon (Ritson) and Charles Granillo (Waldmann) have murdered fellow student Ronald Kentley and deposited his body in a chest in their living room. Believing they are above suspicion and common morality they invite the student’s father, his aunt and several of their friends over for tea, served on the chest.
