Peter Brooke Turner creates theatre in one of the smallest and most uncomfortably places in the known universe: airplane bathrooms.
The Airline Toilets Theatre Company is going on three years old now, which could explain why the john at the back of your flight is occupied for an unreasonable about of time.
The latest creation, “The Ballad of Hopkins McGruder,” is a cowboy ballad. With a gunfight. At 30,000 feet.
Daring that he (a) mentions the word “gun” on a plane, (b) uses “guns” in the video (okay, they’re blow-up things), (c) swigs from a clearly unauthorized bottle of “booze” and (d) pulls out a cigar in what’s clearly a non-smoking flight.
It should be pointed out that this video required thirteen different flight segments to complete.
