Good luck to them, it's funny how certain things are used as scapegoats for tragedies like this. As everyone knows following Columbine, Heavy Metal was blamed as a key reason for the shootings, but following the discovery the Virginia Tech Shooter was a big grunge fan, no-one turned around and blamed Kurt Cobain for mass murder, it's strange. I guess it's just a lot to do with public perception. Violence breeds violence and all that, despite scientific evidence to the contrary. In fact, from a limited selection of games, the most soothing were found to be the ultra violence ones such as Doom or Mortal Kombat, whilst the one that made it's players the most bad tempered, short fused and agressive was, quite logically in hind sight, Tetris.
In other words, it's all the Game Boy's fault.
hmm wonder if someone is now going to shoot a lot of people and claim it was because he watched this play?
Yes it was, it was the cause of fights over who got to play too.
I don't see how this play is going to draw an audience, unless there is something really special about it, because if the target audience is theatergoing computer gamers then they have a pretty small target to hit. Maybe I'm just underestimating writers but from the title I wouldn't want to see this play.
