In the last few decades theatre has become elitist. Despite its conception being rooted in working-class culture - remember when the gentrified had to ‘dress down’ to enter Shakespeare’s globe to watch his performances because the theatre was not for them - theatre has taken a full 180. With tickets at an extortionate price and drama being pushed out of state-school education, most working-class people will never step a foot in a theatre let alone enjoy performances. And if marginalised communities don’t feel reflected in the stories or respected in the spaces then why would they go? Which just creates the self-fulfilling prophecy that theatre is only for White people.
