i dont like his stuff that much
because its so obvious that he does.
its the new century devotion to self important chattiness
-pinter, shepard, mamet-
that turns me off
the classic absurdists wrote with madcap ideas
like alfred hitchcock but with laughs.
similarly - the bedroom farce writers
feydeau, ayckbourn et al
funny, the ones who turn out for these shows, typically,
are the aged. verbal ping pong is an old mans game
and will soon expire on the virtual stoop of the playstation.
