Theatre and War
Theatrical Responses since 1991
What is Theatre?
"Colleran pushes at the boundaries among disciplinary approaches to wartime theatre: performance, media, culture, and theatre history studies. The result is a remarkable work that points the way to future studies in an era when war seems without end." - Theatre Journal
"All in all, this is a very well researched and insightful book, taking into account a great array of theoretical perspectives on media culture, representation, accountability, and ethics in its analysis of how theatre has responded to the increasing mediatisation of warfare in the last two decades." - Journal of Contemporary Drama in English
"This is a meaty, informed study of how and why a certain canon of plays matters . . . This excellent book could serve as the basis for an entire topics class; introductory chapters and any one other could be a freestanding unit in an advanced undergraduate seminar. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty." - CHOICE
