Peter Schnierer writes that "they had a special audience, most of them
either theatre professionals, drama students and literary critics. A few
stray spectators left in disgust halfway through."

This has ominous overtones for me. I always worry about work that only
professionals can enjoy.

What did the "stray spectators" expect to see, do you suppose?
