My favourite play

Why and how does one become a theatre-lover? Often, it is because a play has touched us deeply.

Why do we seek these particular emotions in the theatre rather than in films or in a book? That is our personal mystery. And why we find moments of plenitude in the theatre is even more mysterious.

We have asked spectators and theatre artists to tell us about their favourite theatre memories, in all simplicity.
