Two new plays just added on the plays page, Hutt High School Musical and Resolution Bay. Both have just had their first runs at school over the last month, and in each case I was reminded, yet again, why theatre is my favourite art form. There’s nothing quite like the immediacy of the connection between audience and actor, and being able to stand on the sidelines and absorb the strange alchemy that such an interaction represents. Novels are fine, film is fun, but theatre is real story telling, from one living breathing person to another. Nothing beats that.
