Glad you enjoyed it - I thought it was wonderful too.  And yes, Pinteresque in the best way.

Thanks :)

Yes, I loved it- a clever, enchanting, mysterious and haunting play, in a beautiful production. Dominic West superb, as are the ladies.  The play's construction I admired hugely- won't say anymore, but it's Pinteresque.

Definitely worth seeing. The intimacy of Upstairs is wonderful, but I see no reason why it couldn't go into, say, the Duchess. The transfer would be very easy.

One question, which I'll put in spoilers just in case:

Glad you enjoyed it. It's definitely one of my highlights of the year. In answer / response to your question:

The fact that the stars aren't aligning for me to see this is starting to make me a mixture of sad and angry..

This is becoming one of those celebrity events. So much for widening audiences.........

I saw it last night which I guess makes me a celeb then :)

I appreciate its frustrating if you can't get tickets but as many in this thread show it is possible.

The problem for a transfer presumably is that Dominic West is due to do My Fair Lady in Sheffield over Christmas... which itself might be looking to transfer.
