Where did they hide this amazing play?
14 January 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched this play on TV when I was 14 or so. I never watched any theatre on TV and always thought it was the type of boring to death thing. I don't usually go to the theatre. But this play was amazing. I remember I was glued to the screen for whatever long it lasted non stop, the acting superb, the dialogue was heavy and serious but you wouldn't be able to lose your interest, suffocating heat, the repressed emotions culminating in the suicide. I think I still remember every single scene from the play especially Poncia's. Never watched it again and don't know what they've done with it, looks like they prefer to show Jeremy Kyle or Eastenders now. From my modest opinion its an unforgettable acting masterclass, would love to have it on DVD.
