Potentially a very scary play, although for it to be terrifying for modern audiences some of the characters need to be played rather differently to how they are written. Mr Montague seems a bit blimpish, Mrs Montague a bit too much like Hyacinth Bouquet, whilst Eleanor and Theodora on occasions drop rather too easily back into offhand witticisms instead of being properly scared out of their wits. That said, it's a good story and plays well, but the characters need a bit of a reworking for a modern setting if it's to really grip people.

One of the benefits of eroding memory, you can re-read the classics and be surprised at the ending. Excellent read. Read full review
