Sherman: A Look-back and Guide

At the Sherman

Sherman Theatre , Cardiff, Cardigan, Aberystwyth, Edinburgh , February 4, 2021
At the Sherman by Sherman Theatre There are two articles about the Sherman. Joe Murphy speaks 02 October 2020 about his background and experience and views of the public role of art.

"We are in service to the audience. Popular and commercial don't have to be dirty words. If we get it right they are indicators for how we are doing.”

The article about Theatre Uncut of 12 July 2018 reviews theatre about public subjects.

"Othneil Smith writes: "If I paraphrase legendary dramatist David Mamet correctly, the problem with conventional, issues-based political theatre is at least three-fold: it is inevitably undramatic since it contains no surprises; it denies the multifacetedness of real-world situations; and since it will play exclusively to people who agree with the points it is trying to make, it achieves nothing other than to compound audience members’ self-satisfaction at holding the “correct” opinions."
