How do disabled people experience theatre, as both audience members and performers? How has the institution of theatre responded to disability over time? How can we create new spaces for performance and attend to different communities’ forms of expression?


This insightful and engaging text examines the complex relationship between theatre and disability, bringing together a wide variety of performance examples in order to explore theatrical disability through the conceptual frameworks of disability as spectacle, narrative, and experience.


The Theatre& series is a major innovation in theatre scholarship: for the first time, A-list scholars mould cutting-edge thinking about theatre into an easy-to-digest and easy-to-afford form for consumption by everyone. By selecting the key issues, but not shying away from the more complex debates, Theatre& brings the very frontiers of theatre scholarship into the hands of any curious reader, allowing every theatre student and lover to take part in these exciting and challenging discussions. Each book is written by a high-profile theatre scholar and represents the latest critical thinking in the discipline.
