I saw the play at the ADC Cambridge. The reviews so have panned the play. Consequently the audience numbers were poor. However, I must defend the play. It was compelling drama. Not all of us know about Ted Hughes, Slvia Plath et.al. The 60s setting is authentic. the Evening Standard critic complained that the scenes of the the Irish countryside were too long. Go to Ireland, as Hughes and Wevil did. There is a magic about it which inspired Hughes' Crow cycle. Yes, there is a great deal of introspection, possibly the thoughts and morality to which an older generation can relate. A fascinating insight to the tragic circumstances of Hughes and the womaen and family in his life.
