Reviews

“Vicky Angelaki’s collection Contemporary British Theatre: Breaking New Ground is a fascinating and enlightening read … . Thought-provoking and timely, the whole volume is strongly concerned with questions of ethics and witnessing, and with the relationship between the theatre and its audience. … Ultimately, this whole collection explores the dialogue between the theatre and the audience, and it covers new ground, shared between stage and spectators.” (Julia Boll, Journal of Contemporary Drama in English, Vol. 3 (2), 2015)
