Description
In this volume, some contributors explore violence as an integral element in both dramatic texts and performance throughout the history of the theatre, from Roman blood spectacles to contemporary representations of incest and child sexual abuse. Other contributors, members of the Society of American Fight Directors, examine the various facets of the actual staging of violence, such as orchestrating sound and recreating Shakespearean swordplay. A final group analyzes examples of theatrical violence at the fringes of social acceptability, as seen in the work of Martin McDonagh and Mark Ravenhill.

Together, these articles put stage violence in perspective and help students of theatre better understand the nature -- and consequences -- of what they often represent.
