The great Murray Rothbard wrote a satirical 15-minute play in the 1960s, based on his encounters with the Objectivist inner circle and its leaders, Ayn Rand and Nathaniel Branden, who was at the time her “second-in-command”. The script, along with an extended introduction by Jeffrey Tucker (who also features in the video below) can be found here.
The play was performed in New York City, at the occasion of Rothbard’s sixtieth birthday party. The video on the mises media page seems to be broken right now, but here is the youtube version. The quality isn’t great, but the play itself is hilarious! The part with the cigarettes almost made me choke on my ovaltine.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9mGpMpaHGM4]
