First, that title. Grand Theft Theatre.
Is David Williams dreading a call from IP lawyers for a certain video gaming corporation? Or a brisk cease-and-desist letter before he’s even gotten his new show off the ground?
‘Actually, I can’t believe someone hasn’t used it already,’ Williams tells ArtsHub. ‘It’s just really cool. We did some research – Google searches, really – on it and couldn’t find anything. We initially worried that the whole Grand Theft idea might be a bit too much to live up to. But then we thought, if we don’t do this right now, somebody else will.’
