Women today are no longer bound by the strict set of rules placed on them in the Elizabethan era, they enjoy near equality in regards to gender, are involved more centrally in power, and are found in more diverse positions of power. Unlike Macbeth, murderers are not forsaken by God, but we are taught that God forgives all, and our justice system is based on rehabilitation through punishment, not just punishment. In a democracy containing a diverse number of religions, and where choice of leaders is the basis, the divine right of kings no longer holds any weight.
Background[ edit ] Philip W. Greek theatre on Delos : The Federal Theatre Project was a new approach to unemployment in the theatre profession. Only those certified as employable could be offered work, and that work was to be within the individual's defined skills and trades.
The problems of the theatre preceded the financial collapse of By that time it was already threatened with extinction due to the growing popularity of films and radio, but the commercial theatre was reluctant to adapt its practices.
Sound motion pictures displaced 30, musicians. Unemployed directors, actors, designers, musicians and stagecrew took any kind of work they were able to find, whatever it paid, and charity was often their only recourse. The primary aim of the Federal Theatre Project is the reemployment of theatre workers now on public relief rolls: The far reaching purpose is the establishment of theatres so vital to community life that they will continue to function after the program of this Federal Project is completed.
At its conclusion, 65 percent of its productions were still presented free of charge. Therefore, when Federal Theatre was criticized for spending money, it was criticized for doing what it was set up to do.
Only one event was presented in Arkansas. Units created in Minnesota, Missouri and Wisconsin were closed in ; projects in Indiana, Nebraska, Rhode Island and Texas were discontinued in ; and the Iowa project was closed in On June 30,the Federal Theatre Project ended when its funding was canceled, largely due to strong Congressional objections to the overtly left-wing political tones of less than 10 percent of the Federal Theatre Project productions.
Living Newspaper Living Newspapers were plays written by teams of researchers-turned-playwrights. These men and women clipped articles from newspapers about current events, often hot button issues like farm policy, syphilis testing, the Tennessee Valley Authorityand housing inequity.
These newspaper clippings were adapted into plays intended to inform audiences, often with progressive or left-wing themes. Triple-A Plowed Under, for instance, attacked the U. Supreme Court for killing an aid agency for farmers. These politically themed plays quickly drew criticism from members of Congress.
Although the undisguised political invective in the Living Newspapers sparked controversy, they also proved popular with audiences. As an art form, the Living Newspaper is perhaps the Federal Theatre's most well-known work.
