Abstract or Description

Theatre in Pieces: politics, poetics and interdisciplinary collaboration draws together scripts from seven acclaimed theatre productions by key practitioners, all of which were conceived without the guiding hand of a playwright. The notion of collective writing and interdisciplinary collaboration is at the core of this eclectic compilation of plays.

Each play text is reproduced in full and presented in its own unique format, as originally imagined by the featured contributors, and accompanied by authors’ notes. A substantial introduction by Anna Furse, now one of the leading figures in the area, provides an overview
of each work’s historical significance and identifies how these dramaturgies emerged from specific collaborative devising processes.
