But then I read this article in the Guardian:
An actor slit his throat on stage when the prop knife for his suicide scene turned out to be a real one.Is it murder? Is it a lazy stage crew? This is horrifying! It makes me think of the other recent news story of the BBC broadcasting an actual suicide on television.
Daniel Hoevels, 30, slumped over with blood pouring from his neck while the audience broke into applause at the "special effect". Police are investigating whether the knife was a mistake or a murder plot. They are questioning the rest of the cast, and backstage hands with access to props; they will also carry out DNA tests.
Why is death parading itself in our media? What is the universe trying to say? PS: Imagine being in that theater. Good lord.
