Let’s talk about adaptation.

What makes a play? Is it the words on the page? Is it the actors on stage? Is it more than that?

We think yes.

We think it’s in the imagination of the audience. We think the words and colours and actions and music are just a window through which to see into the writer’s world. To see what we will see. Tell what we can tell.

Art is the conversation between the dead and the yet-to-be-born. The living are just translators. This is why writing a play is so hard, but adapting one is easy.

Well, easier…
