One of the comments on the video:
"I read the play back in college and, to be honest, at the time I barely understood it at all. If someone had said to me "It's absurdist" I would have replied, "Sure. That's just what it is." I simply didn't have enough life under my belt to appreciate it. Now, many years later, it's full of meaning and reads like the book of life. There's nothing absurd about it at all. If anything it's a tragedy. A little humor mixed in to dull the pain, but basically it's a study in existential pain."
