About this book


The Language of Drama is about the critical strategies that can be used to understand the dynamic processes of writing, reading, dramaturgy, rehearsal, production and reception of drama performance in both the classroom and the professional theatre. It draws upon many of the recent insights developed in discourse analysis, literary theory, social semiotics, popular culture studies and performance analysis, in order to present a detailed critical theory and practice of how the language of drama means as a process of drama praxis.
