Interesting words - Doris Lessing

"Very soon everyone stood up to applaud and applaud, in the wsy we use in our theatre, as if the need of the actors to be approved, the need of the watchers to approve, feeds an action -- palms striking repeatedly together in a fusillade of noise -- which is a comment quite separate and apart from anything that has happened on stage, nothing to do with whether the events shown are ugly, beautiful, admirable or whatnot, but is more of a ritual confirmation of self-approval on the part of the audience and the actors for going to the theatre and for acting in it. A fantastic ritual. A fantastic business altogether."
Doris Lessing
