Theatre and war have long been bedfellows. The principal purpose of this book is not to explore theatre that is about war, but instead it focuses on the relationship between theatre & war: how they feed into and inform each other, from rehearsal to post-production analysis. This bookbuilds on the premise that theatre and war have always overlapped, in that this will only continue into the future.

Guided by four key questions, this clear and far-reaching volume asks: how have the tools of theatre been used in the waging of war?; how have the tools of waging war been used in the making of performance?; what are the ‘shared interests’ of theatre and war?; and how has performance become a militarized paradigm?
