Past Cast Hast Passed at Last

In 2022, I have read not one, not two, but three novels in which people experience some variety of trauma as young theater students, and then years later confront the effects on their lives. They’re all very well written, but I gotta say, you guys… I don’t know what kind of theater classes y’all attended, but in my experience, theater ed is typically less lit fic trauma and more Crucible cast party.

still: Crucible Cast Party

For real, though. No doubt there have been theater teachers who’ve taken advantage of their students. But there have also been many, many amazing arts educators who have rescued more misfit souls than you or I can count.
