Policy at the Playhouse
“All art is political in the sense that it serves someone’s politics.” – August Wilson
Theatre can bolster the status quo. It can foment revolution. It can make us question our identities and the identities of those around us. It makes us yearn and strive. It gives us closure. It leaves us wanting more. Theatre is a weapon. It holds up a mirror. It is politics. Theatre dissolves the distance between people. Theatre exposes humanity and inhumanity. Theatre connects us.
The Policy at the Playhouse podcast features conversations about how art, theater in particular, is an integral part of our civic lives allowing us to question and inform our conceptions of citizenship and community.
This podcast continues our ongoing efforts to bring policy and its impact into the public discourse, recognizing that citizens inform themselves in many different arenas.
