“We want to remind the audience that what they are seeing is a play, and not a photograph. The theatre, in the effort to get greater and greater realism – that is, greater illusion – and thereby attempting to do what the cinema can do better, has tended to depart so far from poetry as to depart from prose too; and to give people on the stage who are so extremely lifelike that they do not even talk prose but merely make human noises. So we want to take the opposite direction.” – Thomas Stearns Eliot
