Drama and theatre have always been anxious forms; writing from Aristotle, Plato, Horace and Tertullian make claims about the impact of theatrical expression on the life, mind and morality of its practitioners and spectators. Regional theatre across the globe has come up with new experiments and concepts that invites and awaits a scholarly analysis. New voices like Tarell Alvin, Eugenie Chan and Lucas Hnath, and new dramatist from different parts of the country still remain unexplored.
This book attempts to understand the modern theatrical concepts, audience, perspectives, norms, forms, experiments, challenges, limitations, theatricality or theorisation of the stage, and so on. And to understand the anxieties and blur the boundaries between the audience, the actors and the playwright. Playwrights can range from Shakespeare to Suzan-Lori Parks, from Beaumont and Fletcher to Brecht, from Robert Yarington to Jane West, from Tagore to Karnad, from regional theater across the globe/regional to new experiments in style and form. And can include to various theatres; Proscenium stage, Thrust theatre, End Stage, Arena Theatre, Flexible theatre, Profile Theatres, Sports Arenas and so on.
