5.0 out of 5 stars Great Play 22 Jun 2011
I also saw this play at The Sewell Barn Theatre, my husband was the lighting man! I thoroughly enjoyed it, although it is quite disturbing. The director made it all come together wonderfully, very atmospheric. The acting was also superb. It is a dark play, very dark. About a tomb that after hundreds of years is opened to reveal strange events in the past. When an Emperor is put in his tomb, all of his concubines have to be entombed also, aswell as other servants in the many layers of the tomb. Fascinating things happen as they struggle with the hand that fate has dealt.

5.0 out of 5 stars brillant play for exploring values 3 Aug 2009
By Terrie
We went to see this play performed at Sewell Barn Threatre in Norwich in 2000 - I remeber it still as it is so thought-provoking, as the women's values are tested and re-formed, given the true nature of their situstion. I would recommend it to those drama students, 'A' Level and above, looking for something different.

5.0 out of 5 stars Light in the darkness; the power of discovering creativity 11 Sep 2004
By J. Stiller - Published on Amazon.com
I assist high school age students prepare theatre productions.
Two years ago I came across this script but figured I could never do it with a class due to its imbalance of male and female roles. Something like 17 females and 3 males. As things turned out the grade 9's had exactly those numbers for actors.
It remains one of my very favorite experiences in theatre. Poetic, dramatic, and darn fascinating. (Our first rehearsal involved closing the entire cast in a VERY dark room for 1 hour.) The show was spectacular. Strong stuff!
