Verbatim: Techniques in Contemporary Documentary Theatre Paperback
Edited by Will Hammond, Dan Steward
Verbatim plays are constructed by the playwright from precise words spoken by people interviewed about a particular event or topic.
They lend the play an authority that shifts the theater from mere entertainment to a form of reportage, politicizing the audience.
Contributors include David Hare, Max Staff ord-Clark, Alecky Blythe, Nicolas Kent, Richard Norton-Taylor, and Robin Soans.
