THEATER 49.2

VOLUME 49, NUMBER 2

Our current issue, titled “Scenes of Suffering” explores artistic practices and critical perspectives related to representations of pain, suffering, and trauma on the contemporary stage. Through essays and performance texts—including new work by M. Lamar and Ann Liv Young—this issue sheds light on how theater and performance reckon with oppression, terror, and degradation on a personal and political scale against the backdrop of recent historical events, such as the War on Terror, Black Live Matter, and #MeToo.
