1 Review
Beginning with a brief essay by internationally renowned playwright Harold Pinter, Captive Audience examines the social, gendered, ethnic, and cultural problems of incarceration as explored through contemporary theatre. The original essays discuss a wide range of topics related to the intersection of theatre and prison, including Harold Pinter's screenplays for The Handmaid's Tale and The Trial, Theatrical Prison Projects, Marat/Sade, and themes of imprisonment in US Latino drama. This is the first collection on this increasingly popular and important topic.
