Dial Back the Responsibility, People!

DL: So how do people define political theatre?

[pause.]

DL: Okay … there is no political theatre?

NM: street theatre/theatre outside

JB: theatre inside – theatre economics – the institution

MDL: puppets! [for a moment this sounded like ‘hobbits’] actually communal theatre-makers

W1: network television – sitcoms that address social/political subject matter (in theatres?) who’s to say what’s theatre?

DL: what’s the difference btwn tv and theatre?

JH: money!

W1: it’s populist!  it’s not about the money, but context.

M1: we’re talking more about context than content.

DL: well, is tv more important than theatre?  hold that thought!
