In his first and most popular play, J.B. Priestley explores the ever-pertinent question of how much truth we can take in our private lives. A family gathering escalates into a compelling exploration when the host, Robert, insists on uncovering the truth about his brother’s “suicide.”

Dangerous Corner cannot be properly understood or enjoyed without taking into account the theory that a relatively unimportant word or action can set in motion two parallel, but completely different, series of events: the one taking a normal course, and the other leading to disaster.
