STAG presents our next production, Tudor Gates’ The Kidnap Game directed by Cameron South presented at the Strathmore Community Hall from 18-27 August.
Paul Kendon is a highly successful businessman, international arms dealer, and head of a large corporation. His world is turned upside-down, however, when he receives a telephone call from a man claiming to have kidnapped his daughter, Sarah. Although Kendon is prepared to pay the ransom and keep quiet, his security officer Daines, calls in the police – in the form of the cool and intelligent Inspector Joy Hart. Kendon must now take a back seat as Inspector Hart engages the kidnapper, Philip, in a battle of bluff and counter-bluff, leading to the exciting climax with its unexpected twists. The crisis is resolved but, for Paul Kendon who has devoted his life to his business, the cost is counted in personal, rather than financial, terms.
