Tom Sellar interviews Romanian theater scholar Liviu Malita, who has recently unearthed records of theater censorship during Ceau escu's communist regime. Malita discusses his research at the Archive of the General Directorate for Press and Printing (DGPT) and the relationships between dissident playwrights, apologists, and censors throughout the 1980s. He also considers the work of Romanian dramatists who continue to examine the psychological consequences of self-censorship and reform after the 1989 revolution.
