I read in the Swedish press (DN) that Teatr Weimar (whatever that is) has cut Ibsen's play "Ghosts" down to one hour. Is this modernisation, or attention-span conformity?

Why are people too untalented to write their own original plays instead of adapting the classics and then getting credit for their 21st century genius?
What about a one-hour "King Lear"? Or a thirteen-minute Pinter?
