Strangers On A Train
by Craig Warner
directed by Pat Boxall
What's it like to get away with murder?
America. 1950. Two strangers meet in the dining car of a train and strike up a confessional conversation. To architect Guy Haines, it's a casual diversion; to psychopathic playboy Charles Bruno, it's the striking of a deadly pact to commit the perfect crime. For both, it's a journey that leads to damnation.
Powerful and compelling, Strangers on a Train is a psychological thriller, full of mystery and suspense, portraying a deadly game of cat and mouse.
Based on the Patricia Highsmith novel that also inspired a Hitchcock film, Craig Warner's play delves deeper into the darkest realms of desire, guilt and betrayal.
