One of the hot topics in the Australian theatre scene at the moment is whether contemporary theatre is pushing the boundaries too far in terms of audience acceptability with graphic scenes involving nudity, violence and sex?

I realise many readers of The Drama Teacher may not necessarily agree with my views, but listen below for an interview I did in the last few days with Sydney radio station 2SER on this issue, as part of The Fourth Estate, a national media and communications program.

I really wanted to stress the point in this interview that due to the nature of contemporary theatre, it is becoming increasingly complex for drama teachers to book a suitable theatre show for our students in advance. But unfortunately I didn’t get the opportunity.
