theatre history.

We are two distinct theatres, almost a mile apart, which together make up a single
artistic force. For over ten years we have been driven by our passion for our art
form, our love of our city and our unswerving belief that theatre at its best can
enhance lives. While our two performance bases could hardly be more different,
they are united by our commitment to brilliant, humane, forward-thinking theatre
that responds to its time and place. Our mission is to reflect the aspirations and ...

The theatre was the only recreation we had during the first six months of our
sojourn in London ; and Mr. ConUs' box was always at our service ; not that I
thanked him for it, for it was far away from the dress circle, crowded down in a
corner of the pit tier, and might do very well for him to spy Miss Mellon from, but
came very little up to my ideas of to see and to be seen, or the pleasure of going
to the theatre. These were the days of Mrs. Siddons and of Mrs. Jordan ; and oh,
how joyous ...

Cristina Dommguez Creating Theatre Today: Our Necessary Identity Theatre
does not stem from any type of aesthetic reality. It has to do with the problems of
people who live in our world. It is one of the ways we connect our private and
public needs; it is a way of expressing our needs and of discovering how to
satisfy them, not individually but collectively. — Edward Bond, Inedits et
commentaires This quote from the playwright Edward Bond on making theatre
with young people is a ...

Indeed, it is hardly too much to say that they have created our contemporary
theatre idiom. Once upon a time our stages were lighted by gasjets and before
that by kerosene lamps, and before that by tapers and torches. And in the days to
come we may see some kind of ultra-violet radiation in our theatres, some new
fluorescence. But today our productions are characterized—conditioned, one
might almost say—by conical shafts of colored electric light which beat down
upon them from ...

We have been accused today of distorting Verhaeren's amazing work. My reply is
: no, Comrade Bebutov and I did not go far enough in our revision, the reason
being that there was not enough time. We are too busy to spend one or two years
on a single play; on our clock the second hand is all important. We can't afford to
spend two or three years concocting a play which after all that time will be no
more than runofthemill popular propaganda. I have no doubt that at the rate we

And another difference became more and more obvious daily— on the school
benches where, in reality, only the seats of our trousers sat, we heard nothing
new, or nothing that we felt was worth knowing, while outside there was a city full
of thousands of things to stimulate our minds —a city of theatres, museums,
bookshops, a university, music, a place where every day brought new surprises.
So our pentup thirst for knowledge, our intellectual, artistic and sensuous
curiosity, finding no ...
