Making ethical decisions in art and life

Last weekend, I went to audition for a friend’s play with my flatmate. We were both pretty excited; it was outside of any society because it had been deemed ‘too controversial’, and it was exciting to think that we could endorse work that wasn’t too affiliated with the university itself, an independent project.
