Strangers on a Train the Play
Strangers On A Train was the first novel (published in 1950) of the American thriller writer Patricia Highsmith. A powerful and compelling psychological story it was filmed by Alfred Hitchcock in 1951 and is considered to be one of his best films.
The story involves two young men who meet on a train; one is an ambitious architect (not a tennis pro as in the film), Guy Haines, and the other Charles Bruno, a playboy with a taste for danger.
They discuss the Platonic theories of right and wrong and, during their conversation, Charles proposes that he will kill Guy's ex-wife on condition Guy will kill his father, thus providing both of them with the perfect alibi. Guy agrees and what follows provides a taut and exciting play leading up to a fascinating denouement before the final curtain.
Its a Thiller and a must see!!
