Uma era de ouro do teatro britânico?

Sim:
This off-stage optimism was much in evidence at last week’s Evening Standard theatre awards, where the common view was that the prizes handed out reflected a season of exceptional quality: Rachel Weisz’s star turn in A Streetcar Named Desire, Lenny Henry’s Othello, young playwright Alia Bano’s urgent examination of divisions within British Islam in Shades. Unusually, after a long spell in which the hottest tickets have generally been classic revivals, original scripts were responsible for both the best actor prize (Mark Rylance in Jez Butterworth’s Jerusalem) and the best director (Rupert Goold for his staging of Lucy Prebble’s Enron). London producers predict that this momentum will continue, with heavy advance sales for Keira Knightley in The Misanthrope and James Earl Jones in Cat On a Hot Tin Roof.

British theatre has an iceberg-like structure: narrow at the top, wide at the base. Theatremakers and audiences are engaged in huge amounts of activity below the waterline, and often evade the attention of those who have their eyes fixed only on the top. If we want to talk about a golden age – perhaps golden promise is a better phrase? – we should recognise that none of this is happening in isolation. It’s happening because of so much has been going on, sometimes invisibly to many journalists and critics, over the last 10 years, and which continues, often against the odds and despite the huge slash in grants for the arts.

O seu sucessor deverá ser Olivier Mantei. O conhecido encenador inglês não parece, contudo, disposto a deixar de encenar.
