THE DIGITAL HOME

Theatre matters. The world may be reeling under an apparently unceasing rain of disasters and setbacks – global warming, the Covid pandemic, political and religious extremism, racial tensions, gender issues, social injustice and economic exploitation – but theatre still has a way of zeroing in on core issues like no other form of communication.

The secret lies, I think, in its ability to create an intimate experience within a community setting which gives it a unique capacity for revealing truths. And I can’t think of anything I have seen live or in cyberspace or via an app in recent times that proves this better than Christopher Green’s extraordinary offering The Digital Home which takes as its theme the care of the elderly in different cultures – a theme that has, does and will continue to affect every human on the planet.
