Introduction to Theater homework 3

With the emergence of early Greek and Roman drama came the development of satyr plays, which history has shown were bawdy in nature and contained dialogue  and imagery that some people today might find offensive (in fact, an internet  search of Greek and Roman pottery will find many adult-oriented pieces).  Throughout time, theatre  artists have always “pushed the limits” of decency – a sense of decency that is subjective and can be interpreted differently by different people.

In today’s world, film and television (even video games and music) have ratings systems, but live stage theatre  still does not a formal ratings system.  This journal assignment is to reflect on and respond to the following questions: if theatre  was to institute a ratings system, informing audiences of theatrical works containing sexual situations, adult language and/or violence, would you consider it a hinderance  to the growth of theatre ? in your opinion, would a ratings system in theatre  be considered censorship  of the artist or merely a marketing strategy to increase sales (assisting the public in making a decision)? why or why not? include one example  of a production, event, project or artist that would benefit and/or suffer

Create your response, in the Assignment submission box below (not in the Comments field), as a journal or diary entry.  This response will not be read by your fellow classmates.  The Journal Assignment should be one page long, approximately 350-400 words minimum.  Be careful of spelling, grammar, capitalization, and punctuation…proofread and edit your work as necessary.  If including a video or internet  link, please cite your sources.  This assignment will be graded according to the Journal Assignment Rubric attached.
