YMMV / The King in Yellow

Thom Ryng's play "The King in Yellow":

  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: At various points the play indulges in ham-fisted political commentary about civil liberties and indefinite detention and various other comments that the reader might assume are obvious references to post-9/11 America. Until you remember that the book was written in 1999!
  • The Woobie: Camilla, a silly, superficial princess who goes mad from the revelations of the Stranger.
