Given the changing nature of audiences, entertainment, and media, the role of theatre in twenty-first century culture is changing.
The WHAT IS THEATRE? series brings new and innovative work in literary, cultural, and dramatic criticism into conversation with established theatre texts and trends, in order to offer fresh interpretation and highlight new or under valued artists, works, and trends.
