In a groundbreaking assault on the present state of the performing arts, Meyrick argues that history is repeating itself and is leading to paralysis. Despite nearly 40 years of subsidy, and huge arts institutions, there are fewer theatres than existed a decade ago and these are cutting back employment. He calls for a heartfelt examination of the status quo by artists themselves and the creation of a national strategy.
