"It's a Seizure,"*

While everyone's abuzz over the History Boys movie trailer, there's another adapted-from-the-stage trailer more slowly making the internet rounds. You can see it here, and watch one of the most eloquently disturbing plays ever written*** get turned into a second-rate horror flick.

*whispered one old lady to the other, very loudly, as Paul Sparks, in a dead silent theatre, had a seizure** on stage.

**He was acting.

***Bug, by Tracy Letts

Damn, now that makes me wish I'd seen the play, because I probably would've been able to handle the play, but who knows if I'll pay money to see the movie?
