Bruce Norris: squirm, you hypocrites!
Stage | The Guardian: 'The idea that theatre can change anything," says Bruce Norris, "is optimistic." This is a startling remark from the writer of 2010's scaborously funny Clybourne Park – a combustible mix of race, property prices and liberal pieties that won Norris an Olivier in Britain and a Pulitzer in the US. "The test would be if it didn't just change what we thought – but what we do. It doesn't. I still do what I did when I was nine. It would take a traumatic disruption to change what I do. I live parasitically off the labour of others and benefit from the power structure that protects me. I'm lazy, selfish and infantile and so are most people."
