I've read this play when I was in junior year and I fell in love with it. The plot and the writing posseses great tragedy and comedic relief in the character of the solicitor.

 

 

BEWARE! Spoilers:

*The foreshadoing was excellent and therefore the reveal at the end didn't come out of left field, but at the same time wasn't predictable.
