About this book

This book rigorously examines the work of leading contemporary playwright Martin Crimp. It examines his plays, adaptations, translations and versions, treats them as texts and performance events and argues that their challenge to audiences derives from their 'making strange': producing theatrical innovation, thus rendering the familiar unfamiliar.

About the authors

VICKY ANGELAKI is Lecturer in Drama at the Department of Drama and Theatre Arts, University of Birmingham, UK.

Reviews

'Throughout, Angelaki's deep admiration for and sustained engagement with Crimp's work is evident. This has its most positive effects in her combination of textual and performance analysis: for this reason, her book makes an extremely useful contribution to which future scholars will no doubt be indebted.' - Rachel Clements, New Theatre Quarterly

"Vicki Angelaki's The Plays of Martin Crimp is the first monograph to bring an original scholarly approach to Crimp's unusual and challenging body of work." Sean Carney, Theatre Research International
