I can at least channel my excess nervous energy into a brief review of the play:

Norwegian, proud and Darwinist, with zeal most apostolic
Goes forth into the furthest north with suicide alcoholic
Narrated by a classicist with rhymes most pentabolic
I hate to summarise this way, as it sounds so vitriolic
But the play, I fear to say, is a load of complete rubbish

Ask webcowgirl if she wants this as a guest review on the theatre blog.

Made me laugh :)

Is there a name for the poetic device of ending a sentence with the wrong word, but such that the missing word is obvious due to rhyming ? I've known it used in various contexts, and want a word for it.

Oh, I missed that there was a word missing -
