REVIEWS

"No amount of praise seems excessive, you’ll either be shivering in your seat or rolling out of it with laughter." - New York Theatre Voice

"More spine tingling than Deathtrap.  My ears still ring form the screams of the girls behind me." -  The Toronto Sun

"It's a first rate thriller.." - London Free Press

"This suspense filled play is likely to be the season's most entertaining production." - London Gazette

"Wonderfully spooky... somewhere between an Agatha Christie mystery and a Hitchcock thriller. Peter Colley sends up the haunted house bit with witty dialogue and at the next moment interrupts the audiences laughter with a good, heartthumping scare... a really good ghost story." - Toronto Globe and Mail

"Leave a lot of lights on at home after you see this play." - CBS Radio
