Theater 'has to appeal to people who do jobs and have lives'

British playwright Mike Bartlett: We've got to get away from the idea that it's good to go to the theatre. It isn't church. There's nothing innately good about it. Most theatre is still really bad.

It has to appeal to people who do jobs and have lives. Theatre about theatre is the most awful, terminal nonsense.

If people are going to spend a night out at the theatre they don't just want “good”--we can watch [movie] box sets for that--they want it to be totally remarkable.
