Time Capsule


Current Issue

The centerpiece of the current issue of Theater (Volume 51, Number 3) is an artists’ “time capsule” representing a wide range of practitioners’ creative discoveries from a year when most live theater shut down for the Covid-19 pandemic. This edition also features Caridad Svich’s hauntingly beautiful play Theatre: A Love Story, examining (in the author’s words) “spectatorship, systems of capital, narrativity, and trauma.” In his essay “The Healing Room” author-performer Daniel Alexander Jones reflects on the connections and linkages that have nourished his work over a generation’s span. And in the forum “More Than a Space,” managing editor Rebecca Flemister interviews six artistic directors of Black theaters in the U.S. on the impact of the pandemic and the road ahead for their institutions.
