Night of January 16th

by Ayn Rand

Directed by Paul Campion

To the world, Bjorn Faulkner was a startlingly successful international businessman. To his beautiful mistress, he was a god-like hero. To his aristocratic young wife, he was a force of nature to be tamed. To his millionaire father-in-law, he was a giant whose one single error could be used to destroy him …

On the night of January 16th 1933, Faulkner’s mangled body was found dead at the foot of his New York office building. Did he fall? Did he jump? Or was he pushed? Only you can decide!

Ayn Rand’s remarkable play uses the setting of a murder trial to examine the rise and fall of a brilliant, ruthless man. But this is no ordinary courtroom drama: here, the audience are the jury and are called upon to deliver their verdict at each performance!

Night Of January 16th is a thrillingly ‘immersive’ experience, with a brooding film noir atmosphere – perfect for the intimacy of the BLT bar.
