stage and place in contemporary plays
1st ed.
Helen Heusner Lojek

Written in English.

About the Book

"Contemporary Irish drama communicates not only through words but also through the non-verbal use of space - both the geographical places in which plays are set and the ways stage space is used. The work of cultural and physical geographers, brought to bear on plays by Friel, McPherson, Carr, and McGuinness, illuminates the extent to which perceptions of themes and characters are determined by the plays' uses of space. The plays shape reactions to issues of belonging and not belonging, home and homeland, by locating characters in specific places and by establishing stage spaces that inform perceptions of both Irish characters and Irish locales"--
