The main character, Woolfe, awakens in a strange room; she doesn’t know how she arrived and doesn’t know how to escape. This play is very similar to the horror/mystery film Saw. Both of them are psychological thrillers that are very creepy and extreme. In The Terrible, there is a scene where the characters are forced to put their heads in a bucket of water and are only allowed to briefly remove their heads. The performers gasp for air while water rushes out of their mouths. This scene is intensely gripping. After the performance, the audience remains seated for a while as they need a moment to settle themselves before they can get up and walk back into the real world. For fans of the horror thriller genre, this play is highly recommended.
