Theatre, Time and Temporality is the first book-length exploration of the subject of temporality within theater and performance. David Ian Rabey brings in sources ranging from medieval and Renaissance theater to contemporary performances—in addition to recent writings from physics, philosophy, and psychology—to analyze ways that time can be presented, communicated, and transformed in the theater.
How do we experience time in theater, and how can that experience be altered or manipulated? Rabey's analysis and exploration will spark discussion among students and scholars of drama, as well as among practicing performers and dramatic writers.
David Ian Rabey is professor of drama and theater studies at Aberystwyth University.
