I just think it's messy. I don't think the playwright is responsible for reaching everyone's level of understanding in the audience. I don't understand half of what Tom Stoppard writes, for example.

I think the playwright tells their story, in as coherent fashion as possible for that story.

If most people don't get it, yeah, that's on them. If there's vigorous debate about what the ending means, I think that's actually a great outcome. Making people think is fine.
