On October 28, 1985, Stage Directors and Choreographers Foundation invited Peter Zeisler to moderate a panel featuring journalists Thulani Davis and Erika Munk, playwright William Hoffman, and directors Rhoda Levine, Judith Malina, and Emily Mann. They speak in-depth about the role of theatre in society in the past, present, and how it is evolving into the future. In this conversation, theatre's reach and impact is compared to the mediums of film and television. Other topics include how fiction can convey political reality and why particular issues should be examined in the theatre. This lively discussion gets to the heart of the important role theatre plays in community.
