Dame Judi Dench was asked about her opinion on trigger warnings in theater productions, to which she responded that audience members with sensitive natures might avoid the theater altogether.

"Why go to the theater if you're going to be warned about things that are in the play?

Isn’t the whole business of going to the theater about seeing something that you can be excited, surprised, or stimulated by?
