I’m so bummed that I won’t be able to see this. Maybe this is unrealistic, but I’m seriously considering producing my own version of this play. Perhaps the script could be licensed. For those of us unable to see the performance, someone has kindly uploaded the first fifteen minutes. Here’s one of my favorite lines.
Sadly, the clip skips the part of the scene when the man bursts out of the bathroom, “shooting” at the two men. The trailer makes it look like he comes out with a spear/axe sort of thing. If I could direct my own version, I would definitely have the man shooting arrows. I think it would be hilarious.
The Supreme Court of the United States stated that parody “is the use of some elements of a prior author’s composition to create a new one that, at least in part, comments on that author’s works”. That commentary function provides some justification for use of the older work.
I feel this would fall under commenting on another author’s work.
