  • Editor's Note
    • Abstract: As we enter the journal's thirty-second year, this issue of JDTC features six authors whose explorations of theatre and performance studies incorporate interdisciplinary scholarship related to phenomenology, the environment, ecology, religious philosophy, and socio-linguistics to analyze physical, ritualized, intersubjective, and queer spaces of identity and community. In his "Bathing in Liminality: Soaking Up History in Hot Springs, Arkansas," David Eshelman describes and examines bathing rituals in the immersive, performative space of the bathhouses at Hot Springs, Arkansas, pointing to the bather's active role in transforming that communal and historical space. Relatedly, the author suggests how the body-focused ... Read More

  • Bathing in Liminality: Soaking Up History in Hot Springs, Arkansas
    • Abstract: Bathhouse Row, in Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas, is a line of eight enormous and ornate buildings, dating mostly from the 1910s and 1920s, designed as public bathing facilities. These giant hulks purport to be monuments to the "Golden Age of Bathing," offering a glimpse at practices almost unheard-of today. Remarkably, some of the bathhouses are still used for their original purpose.2 Their continued existence is surprising. The Buckstaff Baths, for instance, has remained in operation since 1912 and continues to offer a bathing routine like that of the early 1900s.3 While it is inaccurate to claim that the Buckstaff or, indeed, any place can be "frozen in time," these institutions function like "living ...

  • Shakespeare as Ecodrama: Ecofeminism and Nonduality in Pericles, Prince of
           Tyre
    • Abstract: Much like his better-known tragicomedy The Tempest, Shakespeare's Pericles displays many characteristics of ecodrama, a type of theatre variously defined as plays that highlight the connections between the human and the more-than-human world; plays that point to social and environmental crises, such as the exploitation of indigenous lands; and plays in which the setting takes precedence, even becoming a character.1 Unlike The Tempest, which is set completely on one island, Pericles roams across geographic space so much that, like many ecodramas, it moves the very idea of setting from the background to the fore. The action unfolds across six different locales of the eastern Mediterranean—Antioch, Tyre, Tarsus ... Read More

  • The Embodied Apophaticism of Tony Kushner's Homebody/Kabul
    • Abstract: The true desire is that which the desired does not satisfy, but hollows out. It is goodness. It does not refer to a lost fatherland or plenitude; it is not homesickness, is not nostalgia. It is the lack in a being which is completely, and lacks nothing.Rather than necessarily being "about" the destruction of Kabul or the US-led war in Afghanistan, Tony Kushner's 2001 play Homebody/Kabul addresses the broader ethical concern of what it means to affect and be affected—politically, ethically, morally, and, as this article will argue, physically—by an Other one will never meet and cannot know.1 If Homebody/Kabul is "about" anything, it is the affective, embodied presence of absence.2 Through the lens of Levinasian ...

  • "There Is a Limit to the Magic Powers of Language": Will Eno and the
           Dispossession of Being
    • Abstract: Over the last fifteen years, Will Eno has emerged as a playwright whose works constitute an intensive and powerful exploration of what it means that we are speaking beings.1 For Eno, language is the vehicle through which we become social subjects, anchoring ourselves in the symbolic order through which we achieve recognition as subjects by the act of communication. At the same time, however, Eno dramatizes how language "unhomes" us, a term used by the narrator of his monologue Title and Deed. In other words, the subjectivity language affords us remains fragile, unable to escape lack and loss. Because, as I will argue, language inevitably alienates us from being, Eno shows the act of speaking itself submitting us to ... Read More

  • The Chorus "In between": "Rep and Rev[ing]" Athenian Drama in Suzan-Lori
           Parks's Imperceptible Mutabilities in the Third Kingdom
    • Abstract: Despite the play's stylized language somewhat reminiscent of Samuel Beckett in its minimalistic and non sequitur–like qualities, Suzan-Lori Parks's Imperceptible Mutabilities in the Third Kingdom is classical in its effective five-act structure. "Part 1: Snails," "Part 3: Open House," and "Part 4: Greeks (or The Slugs)" sandwich two other sections that contain a Greek-like chorus made up of five black "seers"—"Part 2: Third Kingdom" and "Third Kingdom (Reprise)." The play is something of a theatrical revue, in the sense that the same actors play multiple characters in three vignettes with each featuring separate characters.In the first so-called vignette, "Part 1: Snails," the audience witnesses Molly and her ...

           Baby Makes Seven
    • Abstract: Scholarship on Paula Vogel's 1984 play And Baby Makes Seven is scant, particularly in comparison to her 1992 Obie Award–winning play The Baltimore Waltz and her 1998 Pulitzer Prize–winning play How I Learned to Drive. With few exceptions, scholarly attention to And Baby Makes Seven has been limited to examining the play alongside Vogel's foremost works, or as part of larger studies centering on twentieth-century American drama. And Baby Makes Seven's relationship with popular reception is also tenuous, as the play's meaning has been lost on—or at least its significance diminished by—a majority of critics. Eric Grode's New York Times review insists that "the sight and sound of grown-ups mimicking high-pitched ... Read More

  • British Theatre and Performance 1900-1950 by Rebecca D'Monté
    • Abstract: Rebecca D'Monté's British Theatre and Performance 1900-1950 joins Claire Warden's British Avant Garde Theatre (2012) and other recent books in dismantling any lingering universalisms about early-twentieth-century theatre in Britain. D'Monté's book does this through its breadth: As a single-volume work, it is both encyclopedic and vast. She writes in the introduction that she wishes to continue the work done by other historians and critics, "as well as further considering the fluidity between the professional and non-professional, and the commercial and the avant-garde" (2). In the book's wake, West End-centered arguments about the decadence or the unique upper-class focus of British theatre in this period are ... Read More

  • British Drama of the Industrial Revolution by Frederick Burwick
    • Abstract: It is perhaps no coincidence that the term "melodrama" began its groundbreaking journey toward cultural and theatrical significance during the throes of the Vietnam War, which contributed to making the boundaries between high and low art irrelevant just as much as the emergence of the postmodern condition. As long ago as 1964, Michael Booth, Brooks McNamara, and Eric Bentley were some of the critics and theatre historians responsible for bringing to our attention the rich values of popular entertainments among which melodrama proved to be an enduring dramatic genre. Since then critical works have proliferated exponentially, starting with examinations of the content of melodrama and its various manifestations to a ... Read More

  • Ancient Greek and Contemporary Performance: Collected Essays by Graham Ley
    • Abstract: The collected essays by Graham Ley cover a wide selection of topics, although each one is focused on the challenges of staging Greek drama for contemporary audiences. The essays were initially published in a variety of journals from 1983 to 2011 and their content reflects his dedication to investigate this vital subject. The book differs from many others on Greek drama that focus on classical staging conventions (Peter Arnott, Greek Scenic Conventions, 1962) or thematic elements (Edith Hall, Greek Tragedy: Suffering Under the Sun, 2011). Peter Arnott's Public and Performance in the Greek Theatre (1989) is a helpful companion piece to Ley's studies. But in contrast with Arnott's analysis of the audience response ... Read More

  • The Contemporary American Monologue: Performance and Politics by Eddie
           Paterson
    • Abstract: American solo performance has long been studied and contextualized, ranging from Spalding Gray's America by William Demastes to Women and Comedy in Solo Performance: Phyllis Diller, Lily Tomlin, and Roseanne by Suzanne Lavin to Straight White Male: Performance Art Monologues by Michael Peterson. With The Contemporary American Monologue: Performance and Politics, Eddie Paterson presents a unique take on the form. He deftly argues that the contemporary American monologue is inherently political, in form and content. For Paterson, the monologue as a form of performance owes much to religious sermons, political speeches, comic rants, and other traditions of oratory. He offers fresh interpretations on select works by ... Read More

  • The Story of Drama: Tragedy, Comedy and Sacrifice from the Greeks to the
           Present by Gary Day
    • Abstract: This is both an ambitious and frustrating book. It offers powerful insights into the workings of sacrifice in both tragic and comic modes of drama, and offers a wide set of historical examples of how sacrifice is embedded in both modes. But Day's assertions and conclusions are often vague, and hedged, as we shall see, with explicit limitations. Nonetheless, the book's final chapters bring its insights together, offering the kind of critical depth and potential richness that reward close reading.Day states that his purpose is first to "sketch" the "status" of tragedy and comedy in the period covered in each chapter. While "status" is vague indeed, the "sketch" is often a substantive one of the circumstances, uses ... Read More

  • Indifference to Difference: On Queer Universalism by Madhavi Menon
    • Abstract: Madhavi Menon's latest book is as an illuminating critique on the problematic ideology of identitarian politics and theory. Although Indifference to Difference deals most intimately with the ongoing debates within queer theory and LGBTQ rights, Menon's radical argument translates effortlessly to any identity-based field of inquiry. The crux of this book centers on the philosophical debate between particularism and universalism and its application within our contemporary discourse on identity. Especially in the arena of sexuality politics, which has historically insisted on explicating sexual identities and subsequently including each freshly-minted one within the acronymic alphabet soup (LGBTQ+), the power and ...

  • The Oxford Handbook of Dance and Theater ed. by Nadine George-Graves
    • Abstract: Focused, sustained attention to how distinctions between dance and theatre clarify or obfuscate disciplinary boundaries is overdue, as these disciplines adjust to interdisciplinary research trajectories and initiatives across the higher education landscape, particularly in the United States. Artistic practices have long been "postdramatic"; so too do our scholarship and teaching reflect and generate an intermixing of critical approaches and aesthetics across performance genres. Yet unproductive silos continue to isolate scholars and artists considered, as Nadine George-Graves terms them in her introduction to the substantial and excellent Oxford Handbook of Dance and Theater, "too dance for theater, too theater for ...

  • Ibsen in Practice: Relational Readings of Performance, Cultural Encounters
           and Power by Frode Helland
    • Abstract: Frode Helland begins Ibsen in Practice: Relational Readings of Performance, Cultural Encounters and Power with a confession. The "point of departure" for this study, he writes with a twinge of humility, "lies in quite a naïve wish to understand this conundrum: that the plays written by a nineteenth-century Norwegian with limited economic and cultural capital are still performed across the globe" (1). This seemingly simple inquiry is rooted in one of the basic tenets of research for any scholar of theatre history—the importance of context in the creation and production of dramatic work—and does not, at its outset, seem poised to advance the conversation of cross-cultural Ibsen performances much beyond the ...

  • Shattering Hamlet's Mirror: Theatre and Reality by Marvin Carlson
    • Abstract: In his recent monograph, Marvin Carlson develops the premise first established in The Haunted Stage: Theatre as Memory Machine (2003): that theatre capitalizes on the memories of audiences to provide opportunities for meaning. The past lives of objects and the previous roles of actors ghost performances that follow. In this new monograph, Carlson argues that this hauntological feature is crucial when examining the tension between reality and imitation—a primary concern of modern and postmodern theatre. Using Hamlet's allusion to Socrates as an organizing conceit, each chapter considers the theatre's turn away from mimesis to the appropriation of the "real," including borrowing words, the body of the actor, the ...

  • Eighteenth-Century Brechtians: Theatrical Satire in the Age of Walpole by
           Joel Schechter
    • Abstract: Joel Schechter may have written the perfect book for this historical moment. His purpose is "a mapping of paths to future theatrical satire and activism, through a survey of earlier routes explored by Brecht and his precursors in England" (3). Schechter locates these precursors, as his title suggests, in the eighteenth century. He offers a framework for evaluating British theatre artists like George Farquhar, John Gay, Henry Fielding, and Charlotte Charke, among others, as pioneers of the techniques that Bertolt Brecht would later use in forging his Epic theatre. Combining methodological approaches from theatre history, literary studies, performance studies, and historical fiction, Schechter clearly demonstrates ... Read More
