this is, i believe, one of raymond chandler's darkest tales for philip marlowe. it is, as always, beautifully acted by ed bishop and the other cast members. once you start to listen to more of these productions, you really start to get a feel for the other actors and actresses, such as tucker maguire, tobey robins, paul maxwell, peter marinker, liza ross, harry tawb, don fellowes, and ramsey williams; they all have very distinctive and expressive voices.
the story and plot of 'the lady in the lake' is convoluted, graphic and quite shocking: a cruel and ambitious woman in 1940's california weaves a painful and wicked web around the men in her life, and she cares little for the consequences. there are characters in this production that are brutal and nasty, and a few that offer some light relief. but mostly, this is a dark, twisted and violent story.... but it's chandler, and it also has an interview with the great man at the end of the play. cracking stuff.

Enjoyed this. Music adds moody atmosphere, painting more vivid picture. Story flows nicely. Excellent value for money.
