Summary of discussion:
Hardly anyone came to this session.
Reflects attitude to regional theatre. Why? Are big black/other race communities across the U.K.
In ‘white’ areas should there be ‘black’ theatre?
Would it exoticise black people?
Should we allow predominantly rural communities to be ignorant to black culture?
More economic – cuts.
Regions should create initiatives themselves.
More diverse writing – not ‘black’ plays – represents and reflects.
Should theatre reflect the community it’s held in?
‘Ethnic’ plays cuts off (should be more mixed).
Assumption that less of an audience in regions. Too hard.
