Play comments on globalization

'Oh, that's what I wrote'

Playwright uses satire to address marketing of aboriginal cultureDrew Hayden Taylor describes his play The Berlin Blues as a sheer celebration of the aboriginal sense of humour, with no socially redeeming qualities whatsoever.

The L.A. Times disagrees.

"When the show premiered last year in Los Angeles, the L.A. Times said it's a Native reaction/comment on globalization," said Taylor in a recent interview.

"I read that and thought oh, that's what I wrote."
