Words for the Theatre (Hardback)

Pre-order. Despatched on publication 30/12/2018


Each of Words for the Theatre four essays is a moment of dramaturgical self-reflection, debating the questions: the playwright both represents and supplies materials for others to represent - how are the two related? The playwright produces a text whose eventual future is to be an event - isn't this the ambition of all writing? The playwright withdraws from theatre into writing, to produce works for theatre - can this withdrawal-into-writing be seen in theatre itself? How should a playwright deal with theatre's pressure toward realism, given that this realism is a mistake about art to which theatre is particularly prone?
