Verbatim: Techniques in Contemporary Documentary Theatre, Paperback Book

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.
