Moving an Audience

"As playwrights, we want to move our audience, to change or deepen their thoughts and feelings, to give them something to remember" (Hatcher, 1996, p.40).

Hatcher mentions Anna Deavere Smith's play called Fires in the Mirror. (Here "racism" is the"idea" or theme.) Hatcher uses "idea" interchangeably with theme.
