Radical Theatre by Rush Rehm
Book DescriptionWhy should Greek tragedy matter now? This book opens a dialogue between the tragic theatre in ancient Athens and the multiple performances of the modern world. In five interconnected chapters, Rush Rehm engages tragedy on its own terms, using our oldest theatre as inspiration for how we might shape the theatre of the future. Part analysis, part polemic, this book engages the aesthetic, political and ethical challenges of Greek tragedy as a means of confronting what tomorrow's theatre can do.

Books By Author Rush Rehm
Understanding Greek Tragic Theatre, Paperback (July 2016)
"Understanding Greek Tragic Theatre, a revised edition of Greek Tragic Theatre (1992), is intended for those interested in how Greek tragedy works. By analysing the way the plays were performed in fifth-century Athens, Rush Rehm encourages classicists, actors, and directors to approach Greek tragedy by considering its original context." --
Play of Space, Hardback (May 2002)
Offers an approach to the spatial parameters of Greek tragedy as performed in the theater of Dionysus. Emphasizing the interplay between natural place and fictional setting, this book argues for an ecology of the ancient theater, one that 'nests' fifth-century theatrical space within other social, political, and religious spaces of Athens.
Marriage to Death, Paperback (January 1997)» View all books by Rush Rehm
This study considers why the fusion of wedding and funeral ceremonies comes to theatrical life in the tragedies of Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides. By focusing on the dramatization of important rituals conducted by women in ancient Athenian society, it offers a new perspective on Greek tragedy.
