There’s a dead body stashed in the chest…

Patrick Hamilton’s (Gaslight) dark comic-drama about murder, power and superiority, inspired by a real crime.

1929. Two young men have murdered a fellow student and stashed the body in a large chest.

Will they get away with it?

They host a party for the victim’s oblivious family, but light-hearted chit-chat turns to verbal sparring that threatens to unlock the secret stashed in the centre of the room...
