The Text in Play : Representations of Rehearsal in Modern Drama
The Text in Play interrogates theatrical creativity by focusing on how twentieth-century playwrights have incorporated scenes of rehearsal into their dramatic texts. Contemporary theoretical perspectives, principally from Brecht, Bahktin, and Barthes, are used to analyze a series of avant-garde plays whose dramatization of the messiness and flux of rehearsal creativity serves to destabilize yet also invigorate their theatrical potentials.
