Oh Alison,

Please don't think my ire is directed at you: your piece was valuable insight into Bond's writing and overall attitude. My frustration is in the "How We Do Things with Words" vein.

I don't think you personally believe in the division, but there's a reiteration of Bond's idea that, I admit, I misread.

So here's the electronic olive branch: let's wage this war against essentialism in the theatre together! They may take our lexicons, but they'll never take OUR FREEDOM!

Hola there - no, indeed, I am strenuously arguing against Bond's division of Theatre and Drama. Maybe you could read my piece again? It might be harmless, but it certainly isn't arguing for those - indeed, idiotic - divisions.
