Theatre and Violence, Paperback / softback Book

Theatre and Violence Paperback / softback

Part of the Theatre And series


If violence is a terrible thing, why do we watch it?

Nevitt explores the use of violence in theatre and its effect on spectators.

Critically engaging with examples of stage combat, rape, terrorism, wrestling and historical re-enactments, she argues that studying violence through theatre can be part of a desire to create a more peaceful world.
