Greg | 330 comments THE LONG MIRROR is the second play in a collection of three plays in Plays Three by J.B. Priestley. All three plays, in different ways, all deal with 'Time'. The Long Mirror is amazing. It is a fascinating three act play, set in one room, with five characters. This play is one weird clairvoyant manage a' trois.

Nigeyb ^ Sounds amazing Greg. I think my J.B. Priestley journey is on temporary hold whilst I intermittently work through 'Dance To The Music Of Time'. I'll be back though.

Greg | 330 comments It is an amazing play, Nigeyb. Very unusual story. Priestley had an incredible imagination.

Keep in mind a play doesn't take long to read-through, so you could read one while also reading a novel, which is what I do. I am writing a brief outline and explanation of a Maugham play at the moment that I read some weeks ago. It's a hilarious farce called Home And Beauty.

I don't think spoilers are relevant with regard to Plays, yes?

I am also on the 'Dance To The Music Of Time' journey

Nigeyb All good points Greg.

I must see what my local library has got by way of Priestly plays.

I've only ever read one play and that was Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller, which I enjoyed very much.
