Whether he’s being performative or not, what difference does it make? He’s forgoing a lucrative opportunity and potentially upsetting some powerful producers in order to put CTG in a checkmate where they effectively have to program a cis-female playwright - I don’t think there’s anyway to pull that off without leveraging social media - and he devoted most of his public statement to naming numerous female playwrights whose work deserves attention.

We live in a performative, social media era, and he’s a performative figure… who’s still doing the activism.
