Boxoffice NOW open!  

Written in 1933 by author and philosopher Ayn Rand (better known for her later novels “The Fountainhead” and “Atlas Shrugged”), “Night of January 16th” was a hit of the 1935 Broadway season.

One aspect of the play may strike audiences as almost uncannily up-to-date. The murder victim, Bjorn Faulkner, for all his brilliance, was a swindler who was apparently indifferent to the ruination of his investors. “This fellow Faulkner is a Ponzi schemer. His character today would be called a ‘Madoff,’












The first act begins with the judge asking the court clerk to call jurors from the audience. Once the jurors are seated, the prosecution argument begins.

The plot centers on a trial to decide whether business executive Bjorn Faulkner has been murdered by his secretary, Karen Andre. Prior to the start of the play's action, Faulkner had been a prominent businessman who swindled millions of dollars to invest in the gold trade. In the wake of a crash, he had faced bankruptcy. On the night of January 16, Faulkner and Andre were in the penthouse at the top of the Faulkner Building in New York, when Faulkner apparently fell to his death.

The play takes place entirely in the courtroom. Although his death is the focus of the trial, Faulkner himself is never seen. Within the three acts of the play, the prosecutor (Ms. Flint) and Andre's defense attorney (Mr. Stevens) call witnesses whose testimonies build conflicting stories.
