The Clockmaker - Tarragon Theatre
The play starts well with strong characters. The title character, Charlie Chaplin-esque, is not over-played, the police chief played by a handsome gay man and the husband in unfortunate pants is criminally attractive. The only faulty piece is the wife who runs around in a haze, then freaks out, and finally turns in to Nancy Drew.
The problem is the story, far too convoluted, un-followable. I fell asleep 30 minutes in and awoke for the unsatisfactory finale. The play started with character and ended like a poorly written episode of 'Touched By An Angel'.
2.5 out of 10. Definitely miss - no redeeming value.
