For ’tis your thoughts that now must deck our kings,
Carry them here and there; jumping o’er times,
Turning the accomplishment of many years
Into an hour-glass: for the which supply,
Admit me Chorus to this history;
Who prologue-like your humble patience pray,
Gently to hear, kindly to judge, our play.”
― William Shakespeare, Henry V
At any given moment in the day- let’s say you’re making coffee- there are artists somewhere in your community who are working feverishly on a vibrant new piece of theatre, an experience they want to share with you.
On any evening in the week- let’s say you’re just beginning to think about supper- there are artists somewhere in your community who are readying themselves to enter a magical world which can only be brought to life by the connection of their imaginations and yours.
In any town around the world- let’s say it’s yours- people from all walks are gathering, their heartbeats quickening together as their story begins to unfold before them.
“I like the ephemeral thing about theatre, every performance is like a ghost – it’s there and then it’s gone.”
― Maggie Smith

“So always avoid banality. That is, avoid illustrating the author’s words and remarks. If you want to create a true masterpiece you must always avoid beautiful lies: The spectator, perhaps, is content. The spectator likes easy truths. But we are not there to please or pander to the spectator. We are here to tell the truth.”
― Jerzy Grotowski
