A MATTER OF TASTE - 1

Roaming around Manhattan, theatre critic Michael Billington finds that America is in terrible shape. At least that's the view from off-Broadway:

Watching these plays, it becomes clear that American dramatists are obsessed by the failure of existing legal, religious and political systems to deal with the rising tide of prejudice. They suggest you can actually smell hatred in the air....[E]very show I saw was an open or oblique attack on America's inherent injustice and unstemmable racial prejudice.

"Inherent", "unstemmable". Well, this is the Guardian, after all.
