extend their experience

But it is the job of anybody who wishes to continue to write, particularly for the theatre, to extend their experience, not only to observe but essentially to live through as great a variety of experience as they can lay claim to, to explore this experience in depth as well as in breadth, and to find out, if possible at first hand, what is going on in the world at large, and how their society operates in particular.
