Arnold Wesker

One American working in the London theater has [declared]…the playwright to be a fascist because his words dictate to an audience what they should think or feel during their few hours of “captivity” in theater. He is, at the lunatic-fringe level, correct. After working for three years on the organization and transformation of my actual—and imaginative—experience into a play, I want an audience to suspend its own prejudiced intelligence in order to concentrate solely on what I am trying to communicate.

Arnold Wesker, in the New York Times
