"The play left a nasty taste in the mouth, and your corespondent with a splitting headache. It is no wonder that I have learned that the management of the theatre has decided to prematurely end its run after just a single performance.

""TO THE EDITOR "Dear Sir, "It is not often I have cause to complain in such a public manner, but matters regarding the Arkham Sanitarium must be addressed immediately. The perception of the public, that we are a Victorian institution locking away maniacs, must be challenged. "The good work in mental health that goes on is all too often swept under the carpet with preconceived notions of straight-jacketed madmen, frothing at the mouth and doctors too quick to shock their patients instead of talking to them. I would say to all those with this view, move your opinions into the twentieth century!
