Robo & Bash Productions presents ROPE, A Play by Patrick Hamilton, taking place at the Avery Schreiber Playhouse in North Hollywood. Directed by Anna Safar, this production will open December 7th, 2018, and will play Friday through Sunday for two weekends, closing December 16th, 2018. Showtime on Fridays and Saturdays will be at 8pm, and Sundays at 7pm. The ensemble features a stellar cast, including Raul S. Julia, Brendan Frost, Grant Fletcher Prewitt, Eddie Liu, Shelly Snellman, Jay Akin, John Mawson, and Katie Zeiner, as well as a phenomenal crew. An Art Deco rope inspired set design is by R. Benjamin Warren, with sound design by Mark Holden, owner of The Invisible Studios. Based on the sensational Leopold and Loeb murder of 1924 and later adapted into Alfred Hitchcock's classic film, Patrick Hamilton's Rope paints a macabre yet wickedly humorous portrait of murder as an artform to be enjoyed by superior beings. When young men Wyndham Brandon and Charles Granillo strangle their fellow undergraduate and then throw a party around the chest in which the murdered man resides, viewers are left to wonder if the rule-making elite are indeed superior enough to get away with the perfect crime. Audiences are encouraged to dress in roaring 20's fashion as they too will be invited to the party and serve as witness to this “most mysterious and weird” event. Guests will also enjoy live jazz music before and after the show.

Patrick Hamilton's Rope may be turning ninety next year, but you'd hardly know it at the Avery Schreiber. Whether played for thrills or laughs or a combination of both, Rope ropes you in and holds you tight for the duration.
