  1. Hm. Interesting. I like this question. While I’m not sure about the veracity of the statement, I am quite convinced that a function of theatre is certainly not to not offend.

    I find some offensive plays to be the ones that stick with me the longest, and work their way into my psyche more aggressively. For example, when I first finished Scorched I threw the script across my living room. Now it’s near the top of my list of works that I’m dying to produce.
