About this book

This book examines queer performance in Britain since the early 1990s, arguing for the significance of emerging collaborative modes of practice. Using queer theory and the history of early lesbian and gay theatre to examine claims to representation among other things, it interrogates the relationships through which recent works have been presented.

Reviews

' Stephen Greer's Contemporary British Queer Performance is a welcome addition to critical work on performance practices that engage with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) subjectivities, communities, and politics in the United Kingdom, adding to the range of studies in this area... [The book] will be of particular use to students interested in how performance might be mobilised in the service of individuals, groups, and communities with a range of sexual identifications.' - Catherine Silverstone, Contemporary Theatre Review
