Think back to a theatre production you have seen, either this semester or sometime in your past? What aspects of the production really stood out to you? What elements fell short? Do you think the theatre artists involved accomplished what they set out to do? More importantly, do you think that what they were setting out to do was worth doing? In a few sentences, imagine a new universal “rule” for theatre that would prevent theatre from doing things that are unnecessary. You may be as wildly imaginative as you like, but you should follow up by asking yourself, is this new rule fair?
