The Big Lebowski as Shakespeare

The Two Gentleman of Lebowski, a reworking of the Coen Bros. now-classic film, The Big Lebowski as written by The Bard.  It is every bit as good as you think it is.  Someone, ahem Ben Smallen ahem, might want to consider looking into performing rights for this play and put on a production of this Lebowski/Shakespeare mashup.

Here be the Nihilist scene:

I am conducted to a gentle bath.
Will all great Neptune’s ocean wash this Knave
Clean from the land?
[Alarums. Enter OLIVER and the two NIHILISTS, bearing a marmot]
Forsooth! This be a place
Of residence, and much a private place.—
O excellent marmot!

Anon, we crave the money, Lebowski.
We speak in neither jest nor fallacy.
We could do such stuff as dreams do feature,
Believing in nothing; empty and void.
Tomorrow if thou hast not the ransom
We shall recourse, and cut off thy Johnson.

[Exeunt severally]
