Space Opera Q4: Brexit, Trump, theatre: Marry me?
The book was written in 2018, in a context of Brexit, Trump, and many other right-wing and authoritarian movements. The book is explicitly placed in this context; does that add to or detract from the book? Does the book put forward a good response to these movements? Is theatre the opposite of fascism? Should it be?
How should people live, respond to, protest, in an age of re-emerging fascism? Are glamour and satire important?
