Theatre = A Way of Life

Leave a comment

I’ve not written a blog post for a few days and I’m feeling a withdrawal symptom! I’m off to see one of my favourite plays Heroes tomorrow, so a review of that will follow on Saturday. Until then, I thought I’d share one of my favourite theatrical quotes;

“For me the theatre is really a religion or way of life. You must decide what you feel the world is about and what you want to say about it, so that everything in the theatre you work in is saying the same thing…A theatre must have a recognisable attitude. It will have one whether you like it or not.” 

George Devine, first artistic director of the English Stage Company
