DRAMA NOTES

"Drama Notes are taken from current work-notebooks. Some notes are theoretical, others practical (in so far as practice may be made clear outside rehearsal rooms). From time to time other notes will be added. The present theatre is weary. Directors work as if plays and actors were made of cardboard that can be snipped into shape. Instead they are like water that must be confined in situations so that the currents create themselves. The notes are meant as a basis for drama in what I called The Third Crisis." Edward Bond, 2016.
