Imagine a play by Ann Coulter about Barack Obama. Pretty bad, right? This is that bad.
The vast majority of the lines by Scalia are contrary to his well-documented positions and the basic rules for Originalism. Just YouTube one of his lectures! The author creates a strawman that can easily be knocked down by misattributing positions and motivation. Kinda like how Coulter discusses Obama.
The young, liberal law clerk who challenges Scalia at every step is written as the most sympathetic character, in contrast to the Evil Scalia. It's stunningly bad.
But the last 30 minutes is an interview with former clerks, and it dispels and undoes everything the play attempts to do; namely, dishonestly portraying the basic rules for Originalism and the judges who follow it still (it used to be orthodoxy as the way to ensure an enduring Constitution and democracy).
