What needs to be recognized is that the issue of diversity in theatre is one of power and privilege. Certain faces, authorial voices, and cultural standards of artistic excellence are privileged over others. In order for things to be changed (i.e. in order for artists of colour to be better represented and truly have equal access to opportunities), power needs to be SHARED, which means redistributed, which means artists in the majority working horizontally with artists in the margin, and yes, that those with power need to give some up. Everyone is implicated.

I'm speaking from a Canadian perspective but I imagine this applies across North America.
