This gripping tale has all the ingredients of what you might expect from this author – suspense, atmosphere, shock, fast changing mood swings and so on. it is a play that fires the imagination in all respects and it will certainly keep you wondering just what happens next. I hope you will feel this production does full justice to a story by one of the masters of the horror genre .. and I hope you enjoy it! ”
