#161: Five Star Bullshit.

CONGRATULATIONS!

“YOU MADE A SHOW THAT IS A REALLY GOOD GUARDIAN ARTICLE! THEMES ALL IN THE RIGHT PLACE, BUT WHERE’S THE STORY,” she screamed into a void.

There is reality and then there is theatre. There are people and then there are characters. There are facts and there are fictions. There is documentary and romancing the truth.

That play just flew over the top of my head because I’ve seen four hundred like it. And I’ve evolved to the point of discontent. Someone take me to the cinema or a music festival!!

I’m not invalidating your work but your experiment is over and it has failed. Please write story. Please write fiction. Please try again and next time you fail, fail faster so we can make it better fast. Show your audience a good time.

Thank you.
