It might be possible for this to be released
19 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Amazon has a service where they can use video on demand via printing on a DVD-R. I saw this with a few DVDs that are not available here in the US.

I hope they can do this with this play.

Like many of you, I found that this was a profoundly interesting play with many of life's lessons that can be mined.

Combined with first rate acting and a great idea that was well executed, it is a shame this effort does not have wider release.

If I can see again a performance for one last time before I die (many more years down the line I hope) I want to see this again.
