TIE [Theatre in Education] lets children come to know themselves and their world and their relation to it. That is the only way that they can know who they are and accept responsibility for themselves. TIE is carrying out the injunction of the Greeks who founded our democracy and our theatre: they said know yourself – otherwise you are a mere consumer of time, space, air and fodder.”
