    Reviews & endorsements

    "...a clearly written and very valuable introduction to a style of radical theatre which still has a lot to teach. ...Maria DiCenzo's welcome study may then be seen as an especially timely reminder of the power of theatre ti inject subversive vitality into the heart of the body politic." Baz Kershaw, Letters in Canada
