The theme of tragedy is at its most poetic in this play. What actually happens is seriously messed and I would probably off myself too but really, it was wonderful and compelling. It broke my heart and made me question why bad things happen to people who don't deserve it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
