I haven't seen this mentioned much on here, but I went last night and loved it. It's by far the best use of the weeny Jermyn Street space that I've seen, with a fantastic set and brilliant sound design (a phone ringing in the bowels of the 'house,' ticking clocks etc).
I didn't know much about the play before I went, and was a bit concerned it might be very talky and creaky, but it was neither - compelling from the off, tense and creepy. After the tedium of Peter and Alice a few days ago, this was just the tonic I needed! Lots of stuff about sex, sin and Catholic guilt.
It's set entirely in the poky living room of a rambling old house, occupied by two batty old aunts and a wheelchair-bound priest played by Christopher Timothy from All Creatures...
Tuppence Middleton - who played the lead in the Beeb's The Lady Vanishes remake a week or so ago - was very good indeed. In fact they were all good. A total bargain for the £15 I paid for it, and well worth trying to get a ticket for if there's any availability.

Yes I enjoyed it too. I went with a friend and felt that the intimacy of the theatre worked really well. First time I've been to Jermyn Street theatre, had a great view sitting at one side. I will have to look out for anything else as I really liked the venue.
