some people have been reading this classic post from 2010… can’t imagine why!

5TH WALL / ... theatre arts writing & you

I stumbled across this amusing post at Stage Noise, writ on the eve of 2010; defending the position of the Sydney Theatre Award Reviewers (aka STArs) from what was apparently a parting shot by the blog formerly known as Sydney Arts Journo. The original post is now hidden – but the reply is a delicious insight into the privileged echelon of Sydney’s critical community, one that’s been itching at the back of my mind ever since. It’s time to scratch.

In short, an independent blogger wanted to join the group, and implied the STArs were being parochial by not being more inclusive. The response from the indomitable Diana Simmonds (as paraphrased by 5W): We’ll invite who we want, thanks, and besides, we’re not parochial, we just welcomed someone new to our group. Your replacement at the Sun Herald, and the wife of another member!

One cannot help but smirk……
