Quote of the month: “There’s a lot of theatre, some of it Shakespeare some not, which feels like medicine. You feel like if you can get through it, you’re a better person. I have no interest in that; I can’t bear to be in a theatre that feels like medicine. I think it should be a celebration and it should be joyful and at the end you should get it. People love it if something goes wrong, we love it if it rains, we love it if a baby shouts out in the middle; it reminds us that it’s just this once that this happens. There’s a really exciting chemistry that happens in the theatre.” (Emma Rice interviewed in the Daily Telegraph)
