is a true theatre? It is a body of craftsmen - actors, directors, designers,
technicians, administrative staff - united on a permanent basis
to develop its own technique, to embody a common attitude to life that
an audience more or less shares. Such theatres may be socially, politically,
or religiously motivated, but each of them must develop an identity, a
style, a “face,” a meaning of its own. Above all, true theatre
sets itself a goal and plans its work as a lifelong community.
