How well do we know those closest to us? How do our choices affect others? “Dangerous Corner” is one of the three “time plays” by British author, dramatist and broadcaster J.B. Priestley.

In each of them, a different concept of time is explored, and the effect of that concept on the characters' lives plays a critical factor in the story. Set in a small village outside of London in 1932, “Dangerous Corner” takes us to the country retreat of Robert and Freda Caplan, who are entertaining guests at a dinner party for executives of a trans-Atlantic publishing company. A chance remark by one of the guests ignites a series of devastating revelations, revealing a tangle of clandestine relationships and dark secrets. The work is Caroline Cearley’s fourth-year directing thesis.
