In 2016 Oxford Dictionaries named ”Post-truth” as the international word of the year, but as Lee McIntyre argues in his book Post-Truth (MIT, 2018), the concept of post-truth is not a new one, as he cites the vociferous arguments made against the cancer causing effects of cigarettes, the assault on vaccinations, and other significant moments of push-back that have occurred when the facts will out. 

However, in the 2010s the omnipresent nature of post-truth arguments has accelerated and is now an omnipresent part of our lives (on international, national, regional, and communal scales).

The theatre, as one might imagine, has noticed and has responded.

Political protest has long been central to literary and cinematic histories from ideological and artistic manifestos to political pamphlets to satirical novels and realist cinema. They remain powerful vehicles for stimulating public debate, issuing calls to action, speaking truth to power, and heightening awareness of social ills.  Despite censorship, marketplace economics, and national politics, literature, film, and numerous other modes of cultural / aesthetic production continue to play an important role not only as agents of social critique but also as agents of social change.
