‘A nation that does not support and encourage it’s theatre is – if not dead, dying – just as a theatre that does not capture with laughter and tears the social and historical pulse, the drama of its people, the genuine colour of the spiritual and natural landscape; has no right to call itself theatre; but only a place for amusement’. – Federico García Lorca
