My fondest recollection of this film is an incredibly dishy Diana Rigg
in a leather miniskirt.  Yum!

There are images of the production and press reviews at the National
Theatre website:

http://www.nationaltheatre.org.uk

The National Theatre is obviously inviting comparison with the MGM
version, as they are selling DVDs of the Vincent Price film in their
shop.  I cannot find any comment about whether the play will tour and it
is not clear how much longer it will run at the National, as their
current calendar only runs up to the end of August.

There is an amusing piece of publicity material (a flash presentation) at:

www.bloodandguts.co.uk

The play has been enthusiastically reviewed on BBC radio and tv programmes.
