Judi Dench criticizes theater trigger warnings

It’s safe to say that Judi Dench isn’t really a fan of trigger warnings in theater.

During an interview with Radio Times ReviewThe Oscar winner recently joined the debate around reviews at the start of a production, alerting viewers that the content contains potentially distressing material.

“Are they doing that?” My goodness, that must be a pretty long trigger warning before King Lear Or Titus Andronicus! ” THE Notes on a scandal said the star. “Crikey, is this really what’s happening now?

While Dench understands the need for disclaimers in certain circumstances, she also feels that it can impact the viewer’s experience when watching a stage production.

“I understand why they exist, and it prepares people, I guess, but if you’re that sensitive, don’t go to the theater because you might be very shocked,” she explained. “Where is the surprise in seeing it and understanding it in your own way?

THE Skyfall The actress continued: “Why go to the theater if you want to be notified of the things that are in the play? Isn’t the point of going to the theater to see something that excites, surprises or stimulates you? It’s like being told they all died in the end King Lear. I don’t want it to be said.

Dench joined other actors who have criticized the use of trigger warnings, such as Ralph Fiennes.

THE Schindler’s List The actor told the BBC earlier this year that he felt theatergoers had “gone soft”. He added: “The impact of theater should be that you are shocked and disturbed. I don’t think you should be prepared for this sort of thing. It’s the shock, it’s the unexpected, it’s what makes a theater act so exciting. »
