About the Book:

Repeatedly, throughout this collection of essays, dramaturgy resists the mantle of stable definition and instead insists on perpetually redefining itself in relation to its context: the people, projects, and parameters it operates upon and within. Yet, as other essays in the collection demonstrate, this wary elusiveness concerning definitions in no way precludes concrete description and analysis of its working parts. The machinery of dramaturgy has been a remarkably popular topic of debate, in some personal exchanges and in published criticism, for several decades. Some of the most noteworthy positions and personalities from that conversation have been gathered in this collection to be revisited and reassessed with an eye to the future.
