Advocates: Terry Teachout

Terry Teachout is an American author, journalist, theatre critic, playwright and director. He is the drama critic of the Wall Street Journal.


"At the very least, I believe Alan Ayckbourn is not a commercial playwright but a kind of poet, a craftsman of genius who never lets you forget for a moment that his often ludicrous characters, like Chekhov’s, are trapped in a world that has failed to live up to their expectations. His work is full of breathtaking moments of stillness when the laughter dies away and all you can hear is the keening sound of sorrow."
