This article explores a unique ecology of blurry boundaries between personal passions and politics, professional and amateur theatre, and the expectations placed on the theatre and performance department by this community. Examining the powerful collective identity in this community, bound up in ‘the theatre’, and the responses to changes made to a university theatre program, this article explores how this community turned the study of theatre into a political issue.
