Truth and Fiction

Truth and Fiction

Not really a proper post – more a gem courtesy of Francis Alexander at the Chelsea Theatre today – but thoroughly worthwhile nonetheless.

“Theatre is a fiction concerned with the truth, while live art is a truth concerned with a fiction.”

It makes an awful lot of sense and sounds great, so I like it a lot.
