Written by Patrick Hamilton
Directed by Kylie Lowe
For the mere sake of adventure and danger, brilliant Wyndham Brandon persuades his weak minded friend, Charles Granillo, to assist him in the murder of a fellow undergraduate, a perfectly harmless man named Ronald Raglan. They place the body in a wooden chest, and to add spice to their handiwork, invite a few acquaintances, including the dead youth’s father, to a party, the chest with its gruesome contents serving as a supper table. One of the guests, the poet Rupert Cadell, has his suspicions. Will the young men get away with murder most foul?
