What happens to politics when it takes the form of theatre? How has theatre both exploited and undermined politics both in society and on the stage? Theatre& Politics explores the complex relationship between theatre and politics, questioning some of the assumptions that often arise when they are brought together. Challenging ideas about 'entertainment' and 'communication', the book draws on a broad range of key writing from Plato to Ranciere, and theatrical examples from Shakespeare and his adaptors through Peter Handke to debbie tucker green.
