– We’re in a world nowadays
where there’s so much skill and cunning going into the art of keeping
us in front of screens all the time. Keeping us away from each other. Keeping us only listening
to the opinions of people who already agree with us. That is seems to me that theater’s more important than ever as a place where we meet
real other human beings who come from different places, who have different views of the world, but who are brought together
by their love of theater and therefore by a basic desire for real conversation and not just the shouting inside an echo chamber. So Niagara-on-the-Lake is a perfect place to have this kind of retreat where we can come and
meet and remind ourselves that there are still plenty of sane, passionate people in the world.
