Abstract

Presenting a critical investigation of the reinvigoration of the political in contemporary British theatre, this study provides a fresh understanding of how theatre has engaged with issues of human vulnerability and responsibility in the last two decades. By focusing on the spiralling of uncertainty in the new millennium, the book makes a case for reading precarity as a political theatrical trope which carries the potential to re-animate our understanding of the 'human' and communal responsibility for the lives of others.
