More matter, with less art.

More art, with less matter, please!
All these plays have so much to say but no real art in how they say it. Art first. Matter second. Or, if there is a great deal of matter to put forward – wrap it in layers and layers of art. If your very important play about pig farming is just a “very important play about pig farming” it ceases to be very important to me. I file it under MATTER and with no art to make me care about it, I find that the importance of pig farming is lost entirely in the matter matter manner it was show to me.
This is not to say I don’t want art with matter. Art that is just technique or decoration will blow away very clearly without some matter to keep it on the ground. I guess I’d say three parts ART to one part MATTER. That’ll be very satisfying.
