  • Charles de Gaulle Airport: The Camp as Neoliberal Containment Site in Two
           Trojan Women Adaptations
    • Abstract: In August 1988, Mehran Karimi Nasseri arrived in Paris's Charles de Gaulle Airport. And he stayed. And he stayed. He stayed until 2006, when he was taken to hospital gravely ill. Nasseri had lost his passport and the papers that were supposed to grant him refugee status in Britain. Without paperwork to prove either his identity or his right to travel to the UK, Nasseri simply remained in Terminal 1. Nasseri "lived in a lost dimension of absurd bureaucratic entanglement…[He] couldn't leave France because he did not have papers; he couldn't enter France because he did not have papers. The authorities told him to wait in the airport lounge while they sorted the paradox out."1 Nasseri had become stateless in 1977 after ... Read More

  • The Plague and Immunity in Othello
    • Abstract: Amiasma of plague hangs around Shakespeare's dramatic corpus, and Othello is a topical response to its occasional outbreak in 1603. Inevitably, its textual body is not only a palimpsest of traces recording epidemic outbreaks, but it is also a field of politico-clinical discourses that attempt to govern, quarantine, and direct the disease toward certain controllable ways. In other words, Othello is a representation of the rise of modern medical science. We know that as a medical term "Othello Syndrome" indicates a pathological and delusional jealousy, which is not primarily, however, the clinical subtext of the play that interests me; rather, the play's metaphoric depictions of the plague-stricken corpus politicum ...

  • Resisting Neoliberalism and Patriarchy: Marina Carr's On Raftery's Hill
           and Lola Arias's La escuálida familia
    • Abstract: If we look at a possibly speculative dystopic world in which all that remains is a single family invested in self-destruction through violence and incest, can we see a critique of the patriarchal narratives that have perpetuated discrimination and abuse in turn of the current century society? Maybe, maybe not. Maybe what we've got is just a story of one dysfunctional family at the end of time. But take two such contemporaneous plays from the dawn of the millennium that each recreate that same horrifying premise, one from Ireland, one from Argentina, and the viability of such a premise deepens.In the final sentiment of Lola Arias's play La escuálida familia (2001), Luba says,They say that sibling-love engenders ...

  • Four Women in the Woods: An Ecofeminist Look at the Forest as Home
    • Abstract: In 2002, Futerra, a British media company advocating sustainability, launched "The Seasons Alter," a four-minute video of Titania's "bad weather" speech. Played by two actresses, Titania chides the surly Oberon, chasing him around the sparse modernist set dominated by an enormous clock. He responds to her recital of environmental disasters stemming from their quarrel by placing the onus on her: "Do you amend it then: it lies in you." She then repeats her own last line more forcefully: "We are their parents and original."1 Formerly, directors were wont to shorten this speech—the longest in the play—because its serious topicality broke the spell of comic fantasy. Futerra, by extracting its prescient relevance to the ... Read More

  • Dramatic Spaces: Scenography and Spectatorial Perceptions by Jennifer A.
           Low (review)
    • Abstract: In Dramatic Spaces: Scenography and Spectatorial Perceptions, Jennifer A. Low offers an ambitious exploration of performance spaces, ranging from Plautine Roman theatres to the sculptural modernism of the German Bauhaus to the Broadway debut of M. Butterfly. With a strong command of theatre history and an exceptionally diverse array of textual examples at her disposal, Low convincingly argues that dramatic space—both its possibilities and its limitations—should be indispensable to the study of drama. Each chapter explores the relationship between production, text, and reception. In this way, Low embraces her role as both a theatre historian and a literary scholar, deftly moving between these interdisciplinary ... Read More

  • Shaw and the Actresses Franchise League: Staging Equality by Ellen Ecker
           Dolgin (review)
    • Abstract: Ellen Ecker Dolgin's Shaw and the Actresses Franchise League: Staging Equality makes a lively and valuable contribution to feminist theatre studies. The book traces the course from stasis to motion in women's theatrical roles and their everyday lives in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Its scope is broader than its title might suggest: while Shaw and the Actresses Franchise League do feature prominently in the book, they serve as two key nodes in an expansive network of associations among playwrights, practitioners, theatre venues, and feminist activists extending from Britain across the Atlantic. Discussions of plays include well-known works by Ibsen, Wilde, Pinero, and Granville Barker, as well ... Read More

  • The Reformation of Emotions in the Age of Shakespeare by Steven Mullaney
           (review)
    • Abstract: Steven Mullaney's The Reformation of Emotions in the Age of Shakespeare opens with a striking image: the charnel house of old St. Paul's cathedral being emptied into a swamp on the Thames, forming the very land over which theatregoers passed to reach Shoreditch and the first Elizabethan theatre. As he immediately admits, however, "few, if any, would have been aware of what lay beneath their feet" (5). He nevertheless claims that this image, the move from the charnel house to the theatre, can serve as an emblem "more structured and less easily understood than an anecdote" of shifts in what he calls "the Elizabethan social imaginary" (4–5). This seems to mean that the position of the bones remained significant, even ... Read More

  • Disability Theatre and Modern Drama: Recasting Modernism by Kirsty
           Johnston (review)
    • Abstract: In Disability Theatre and Modern Drama: Recasting Modernism, Kirsty Johnston undertakes a productive question that is not entirely rhetorical: what if the questions and creative work prompted by disability are, in fact, foundational to modern theatre's themes and aesthetics? This query launches a valuable, generative book. Johnston's investigation of how such aesthetics might be staged and embodied stems from her stance that disability theatre is "best understood as a kind of theatre-making that draws from disability culture's challenges to ableism and comprises a growing international field of practice remarkable for its political force, artistic re-imagining of theatre traditions, and lively aesthetic debates" ...

  • Christopher Marlowe and the Failure to Unify by Andrew Duxfield (review)
    • Abstract: Scholarship has often focused on the role of excess in the plays of Christopher Marlowe, from his overreaching protagonists and their aggrandizing dreams of imperial expansion or accumulation of riches and knowledge to the sumptuousness of the playwright's "mighty line" and the exotic worlds created by Marlowe's language. Andrew Duxfield's study instead focuses on "the process of reduction and the ideal of unity" exhibited in Marlowe's tragedies (1). Noting the widespread concerns in the 1580s over "the discordance of society and desire for a move towards unity" (3), Duxfield argues that Marlovian drama explores such anxieties but does so in tension with his more typically noted emphasis on expansion, renegotiating ...

  • Shakespeare's Medieval Craft: Remnants of the Mysteries on the London
           Stage by Kurt A. Schreyer (review)
    • Abstract: This is a first book, with all that that implies: the courage of discovery, wide reading, an assurance about putting past (and not so past) scholars right while approving the methodologically congenial, as well as confidence in its argument. The risk is always that in the search for support in like-minded books, scholars fail to consider the assessments of and reactions to those books; it is difficult not to believe what we want to be true, and perhaps we don't talk enough with people from other disciplines. The title is clear: it belongs to the growing chorus that insists upon continuity between an undemarcated "Middle Ages" and a "Renaissance" that focuses on Shakespeare in order to claim for him immediate ...

  • British Drama of the Industrial Revolution by Frederick Burwick (review)
    • Abstract: This book examines provincial theatres' role in the formation of working-class identity and consciousness in the industrial age. Burwick begins his study with the proliferation of provincial theatres after the Theatrical Representations Act of 1788, which gave the power of licensing theatres to localized authorities throughout the provinces. This act eroded the state's stranglehold on theatrical representation after the Licensing Act of 1737 and opened opportunities for productions of old and new plays reflecting the world of working men and women. Burwick's research into more than sixty provincial theatres shows us how the oppression of workers and, sometimes, their radical resistances to that oppression became ... Read More

  • Staging the Peninsular War: English Theatres 1807–1815 by Susan
           Valladares (review)
    • Abstract: In 1994, Julie Carlson was among a handful of academics to invite fellow romanticists In [to] the Theatre of Romanticism. While the theatre these scholars portrayed was expansive, it was by no means measureless. Perhaps the 1813 London theatrical sensation, Remorse was not familiar to many readers at the time, but Coleridge, Percy Shelley, and Byron certainly were, and Carlson's ambitious engagement with period performances depicting women and nationalism brought to light the false binaries that structure oppressive domestic—familial and national—relationships. Coleridge also features prominently in Susan Valladares's Staging the Peninsular War: English Theatres 1807–1815, where, distinctly, the English national ... Read More
