Applied Shakespeare: A Transformative Encounter?

Hulsmeier, AC (2023) Applied Shakespeare: A Transformative Encounter? Springer - Palgrave Macmillan Cham, London. ISBN 978-3-031-45413-4

Item Type: Book


This book speaks to those interested in where and why Shakespeare’s work is used to capture the transformative intentions of different areas of Applied Theatre practice (Prison, Disability, Therapy), representing a foundational study which considers subsequent histories and potential challenges when engaging with Shakespeare’s work. This is grounded in a case study analysis of three salient British Theatre Companies: The Education Shakespeare Company (prison), the Blue Apple Theatre Company (Disability), and the Combat Veteran Players (therapy).
