And today's Guardian has a column in which, after seeing several shows, the author and his family try to make some decisions:
The Pajama Men provoked a family debate. What makes a show appropriate or inappropriate? Sex? Violence? Drugs? Paedophilia? Verbal obscenities? Nudity? Outside the children's programme, almost everything at the fringe seems violent, disturbing or sexual in some way. That, I suppose, is what most good theatre is about. So we scrapped the appropriateness question and simply asked what might be interesting. Children this age are old enough to be challenged. Sometimes they positively revel in it. That does not mean they want to see Trilogy, with a stage full of dancing, naked women. It is not that their sensibilities need protecting, it's just that they would die of embarrassment.
