Each March Pendragon Theatre offers to the public something new whether introducing a new director, play or original work.
For me this opportunity highlights the importance of live theatre. When seeing a movie the audience misses all that goes into the making of the film and can only catch a glimpse when the credits role with job descriptions that most of the time have little meaning.
Theatre gives us the chance to see a collaborative effort where special effects are not computer generated.
