    Αρκετά ενδιαφέρον βιβλίο. Όμως λόγο του μικρού του μεγέθους, θα μπορούσε να είχε σταθεί περισσότερο στη βία στο θέατρο και λιγότερο στη βία στο θέαμα γενικά.

    Clear enough, but really dry. The research is good, but the arguments are a little one sided for something designed to be comprehensive. No flavour to the writing at all.

    This is an incredibly interesting and insightful little book about violence in the theatre. It talks about issues such as when violence is seen as acceptable (canon and historical plays) and when it was considered as gratuitous and unnecessary (Blasted, Saved) It briefly explored ideas of masculinity, rape and verbatim theatre being useful as a way of healing after violence, specifically the theatre that came out of South Africa after the end of apartheid.

It requires prior knowledge of a lot of the plays discussed but raises some very interesting points about what we do and don't see as extreme in theatre and how these extremes challenge our ideas. Not for the faint hearted. Grace

I probably enjoyed this more than a layman would because i knew all of the plays spoken about so could visualise the specific scenes reference. I wish this had been around when I was at university because I can think of at least three essays I could have used this as reference for.
