The Deadly Game Letter Web2 232x300

“Three retired men of law on a remote mountain in Switzerland amuse themselves by going through the legal ceremony of prosecuting strangers who drop in. An American traveling salesman is their guest on a snowy evening. Although their ‘deadly game’ seems foolish to him, he agrees to it to humor his hosts. Since he has never been guilty of a crime in his life, he is unable to propose anything they can try him for. After a little amiable social conversation, the retired prosecutor discovers a plausible case. He accuses the traveling salesman of having murdered his boss. At first, this appears to be a wild improvisation. But Mr. Yaffe, using Mr. Dürrenmatt’s novel as source-book, gradually makes something real out of phantoms. By ingenious questioning, he proves his case out of the witness’ own mouth.”; “…a tidy, literate piece of dramatic make-believe.” —Chapman, NY News. “…provides a steadily engrossing evening in the theatre.” —NY Post. “…an adult delight.” —NY World-Telegram & Sun.
