If you have ever read a Stephen King novel, Seen 'Psycho', or visited a
fairground 'Haunted House', you may just be psychologically equipped to deal
with the first few minutes of this thriller. After those though, you embark on
an ever rising learning curve of fear, with dazzling writing and perfect timing
from the actors drawing you towards the coldest chill in London theatre.
There is a good reason this play has run so long with little publicity:
anyone who stumbles in HAS to go back, this time bringing a friend for moral
support. Theatremonkey takes his psychiatrist to be on the safe side. Anyone
surviving unscarred can boast about it - precious few. See it.
