great except for the end
1 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This play was cleverly crafted and brilliantly acted. Unfortunately I felt the writer ran out of 'dead clever' ideas towards the end. The decision to introduce a spectacular gun scene was 'dead un-clever', and did not fit the menacing style of the overall drama. The endless stream of guns suddenly surfacing at the actors' fingertips was absurd and far fetched. Following this the final scenes pulled the drama back on line in that they were suitably 'clever' and in keeping with the story, but they did not redeem the silliness of the previous shoot-out. The standard of acting, set and costume design were all first class. The script was very well written and the story was excellent except for that one scene. More drama of this type please.
