This is truely one of the best plays i have ever read, seen or performed. It is so subtly sinister. Its an in your face drama without being in your face. Its riveting, yet nothing happens. The passage of time for a sleepy seaside guesthouse contains madness, emotional breakdowns, yet leaves you feeling like youve just chatted with a nextdoor neighbour. It is a play of opposites, and contradictions. The play is deffinately a credit to Pinter, how any man can derive such humour from a breakfast of cornflakes and fried bread is beyond me. The play is so dark and yet is truely innocent. i would fully recomend it to anyone looking for a good read or a riviting watch.
Moogie is right. We need to learn a little more about the play. Setting, style, characters. It can be hard not to give the whole plot away but a few hints and clues always help. I keep repeating it, but the best advice is still to read around the site and try to get a feel for what works. Don't copy anyone else's style - at the end of the day it is still your voice that we want to hear - but give yourself a bit more space to put over your reactions. What you like and why, what you don't and why not. If you do decide to update this one, drop a note in my guestbook & I'll happily come back and take another look. Lx

Sorry for low rating but it doesn't tell me much about the book - Kupo x

The poor spelling really did make that difficult to read.
