What is Theatre?

Some reflections on what theatre is from Slings and Arrows:

"I don’t really think that theatre’s about technology. I think it about what happens right now, in front of an audience."

"Theatre’s very nature is ephemeral. And it’s only reason for being is to tell us a story that we absolutely need to hear."

"People as so sick of being sold to… of being bombarded. They want a place to go where they can actually hear the truth."

"Drama is that willing suspension of disbelief for the moment which constitutes poetic faith."
