Reviews

'This is a timely and vital contribution to the growing body of scholarship on contemporary theatre and ethics. With its wide coverage of plays and performances, and incisive analysis of key discourses on witnessing, responsibility, precarity, violence and intimacy, this is a landmark collection that brings ethics and drama into urgent correspondence.' - Chris Megson, Royal Holloway University of London

'Mireia Aragay and Enric Monforte's Ethical Speculations in Contemporary British Theatre is a welcome addition to this growing body of work which represents an 'ethical turn' in the field of theatre studies.' - Studies in Theatre and Performance
