Playwright pissed at poor reviews, attacks theatre with axe

According to this story at the Telegraph, playwright Douglas Gordon was a bit miffed at the reviews garnered by his latest artistic masterpiece, a treatment of the Little Red Riding-hood fable fit for the 21st century.

The Manchester Evening News gave it a 3 out of five stars. It goes downhill from there.

The Guardian gave it 2 of 5 and offered that the play was "humorless and sedate."

WhatsonStage also chimed in with a 2 for 5, while the Telegraph's own reviewer claimed to have caught the "whiff of a vanity project."

Mr. Gordon responded by taking an axe to the theatre mounting his play...

I would have gone for the critics!
