Clowns: Trauma and Survival

  • Rachel Tracie


In this chapter, the sequel to Joyriders is analyzed by looking at the way Reid presents a literary engagement with the effects of trauma on young people. This play is a fascinating exploration of the way trauma can manifest for survival and need for communalization of that trauma in order to move on. The production analysis looks at the one production of the play at the Orange Tree Theatre in Richmond.
