In A Forest Deep And Dark

So what exactly?

Well, I've not looked at the interviews, but I'm guessing the cast think it's going to be good.

Saw this at today's matinee and enjoyed it but then I like Neil LaBute. It's such an American piece that it was felt that a glossary of terms was needed in the program. Why is it premiering in London?
It's a two hander with the plot opening up like a flower as more and more is revealed - typical LaBute. The intense language seemed to shock some audience members who were perhaps hearing some of the more graphic terms for the first time?,
Fox was okay as the foul-mouthed quasi-redneck brother who has "issues" with his sister, played beautifully by Olivia Williams. Her gradual disintegration was masterfully done - what a superb actress she is. Nothing much happens, it's all talk, but I found it engrossing. There was a nice loud round of applause at the end so I guess a lot of other people did too.

Mr LaBute, in the same kind of language you use in your play, please give me a 'f.....g' break.
Also, what's the point of the extremely loud and distorted music playing in the auditorium from 30 min before the play starts?
The house wasn't full and a high percentage of patrons had TKTS tickets.

A high percentage suggests a figure perhaps over 50%. How on earth can you say that many had been to TKTS for their tickets? Did you go from row to row conducting a survey? This sort of a statement suggests people are unwilling to pay full-price for their seats and is thus negative publicity; such unfounded statements are unfairly damaging to the production. Give us your opinion, by all means, but unless you're an usher checking people's tickets, you can't say a high percentage had resorted to TKTS.
