Interior Set

This spellbinding reverse cat and mouse drama garnered rave reviews in London and Dublin. It is 1794 and Danton, the hero of the French Revolution, has been betrayed and jailed amid the terror he helped unleash. To confound any attempt to free the fabled prisoner, a convicted actor is kept in an identical cell at another location. Danton employs all his guile to convince his guard that he is the decoy, win his trust and get him to convey a letter to the outside world to effect his liberation. But is this really Danton? Or the actor? Or a madman?
