This new title in the Theatre And series confronts the complex relationship between theatre and death. Taking the position that all humans need to ‘live’ with the reality of death, Mark Robson draws on a range of examples, from Greek theatre to contemporary practitioners, in order to testify to the potency of both theatre and death in contemporary culture. 

Striking and thought-provoking, this book is ideal for undergraduate and postgraduate students of Theatre and Performance, or English Literature students with an interest in tragedy.
