More about this story

Adulterous lovers, Sandra and David are called to the Torrances' flat for evening drinks. However no one is home. What first appears to be a simple mix up of dates turns to something far more sinister when the pair are locked in and, all at once, framed for murder.

The Rats was first presented as part of The Rule of Three which toured the United Kingdom in 1961 and subsequently opened at the Duchess Theatre in the West End in 1962.
