Audiences have gone ‘soft’ – Ralph Fiennes

by Editor

Trigger warnings put out before plays mean that modern audiences have gone “soft”, actor Ralph Fiennes has said.

“The impact of theatre should be that you’re shocked, and should be that you’re disturbed, I don’t think you should be prepared for these things”, he told the BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg.

The Harry Potter and In Bruge star said that warnings for scenes that may affect people physically should remain, but that as a lover of the theatre he never experienced trigger warnings in his youth.

Fiennes is starring in a modern stage retelling of Macbeth this year.
