I noticed that under "Culture" there's no slot for theatrical productions - ideas for dramas or comedies, new ways to do Shakespeare, etc. There is "Culture: Music: Shows" that could cover Broadway musicals etc., but I couldn't see where one might put an idea for a play... Please let me know (I'm sure
you will) if I simply missed one that already exists...

||[Enter stage left the Evil Sorceror. He attempts to give the audience a winning smile but just looks as if he is in pain].
Evil Sorceror: "Hello children! I don't suppose you've seen that pesky Art/Theatre category have you?"
Audience: "It's behind you!"
Evil Sorceror: [looks behind him but the Art/Theatre category quickly ducks out of sight behind some conveniently placed scenery vaguely resembling a stand of trees] "Oh no it isn't!"
Audience: "Oh yes it is!"
Evil Sorceror: "Oh no it isn...Oh never mind!" [His shoulders slump in defeat as he exits stage right]
[Arts/Theatre category emerges from behind trees and thumbs nose at departing Evil Sorceror's back. There is a tremendous bang and a puff of smoke appears from the wings, stage left. Arts/Theatre category drops down dead]
[Enter stage left the Big White Hunter, armed with a blunderbuss and accompanied by a native bearer]
Big White Hunter: "Got the bugger!"
[He walks over to the dead category and gives it a nudge with his boot]
Big White Hunter: "Ha! Stone dead. What a shot!"
[Addresses native bearer who looks incredibly bored]
"Mind you, as categories go, this one is quite small. Did I ever tell you about the time that I killed Halfbakery/Words armed only with a cocktail stick and a sock full of custard?"
[Stage Curtain crashes down dramatically]
