Theatre and Violence

by Lucy Nevitt - £6.99  Palgrave Macmillan (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781137302274 | ISBN 10: 1137302275

If violence is a terrible thing, why do we watch it? Nevitt explores the use of violence in theatre and its effect on spectators.
 
Critically engaging with examples of stage combat, rape, terrorism, wrestling and historical re-enactments, she argues that studying violence through theatre can be part of a desire to create a more peaceful world.
