So, I’ve never seen a bad play. There’s just so much in how the staging is done, in how space is occupied, etc. There’s something about the breathing presence of live actors that gives a performance tension; I always feel tied to the actors on stage, and experience them as physical entities, unlike television, where you are a passive witness to slim projections of light and colour. It’s the difference between observing a live person and a facsimile.
