I am a returning subscriber of Everyman Theatre and have been very pleased with the performances, until last night.. I was very tempted to leave at intermission but thought that it might get better. I should have gone with my initial gut feeling. Although the play is accredited for being a suspenseful thriller, it failed miserably and instead was comedic. It was like watching a slapstick comedy with Larry, Moe and Curly. The Three Stooges couldn't have been any less menacing. Bruce Randolph Nelson, who played the murderer Roat, reminded me of the cartoon character, Snidely Whiplash. Megan Anderson, who played Suzy, was a disappointment , in her portrayal of a blind woman, much less a heroine. Several times, during what was supposed to leave the audience on the edge of their seats, I couldn't control my laughter and had to cup my mouth to avoid being rude. It was just plain awful! I was at the theater with 2 of my friends, who had the same opinion. I have given the play two stars, simply because the set decoration was realistic and done well. Hopefully, this performance, will not be any indication of the next five plays.
