- Pub. Date:
- Cambria Press
Alongside the empirical study of the companies, the author has employed prevalent theories from criminology and penology, as well as applicable performance theory, to discuss the significance of the theatre work as a social phenomenon within the very specific culture of the prison. From these individual studies, the author draws conclusions about the potential importance and place theatre could have in the penal system.
This book, a first study of its kind, is a groundbreaking and important contribution to theatre studies.
