Don't Look Now

Clare and myself visited the Haymarket Theatre, Basingstoke this afternoon to see a matinée performance of "Don't Look Now" -- (the link is to the film version).

We thought the acting was excellent, but the play is a slight thing, driven - if that is the word - by a tedious and insubstantial plot embodying elements of the occult and implausible coincidences for which disbelief cannot be suspended.

What could Daphne du Maurier have thought was the point of this piece of work?

Another review here.
