PhD title: Staging the tragic: identity, adaptation and appropriation in postmodern dramaturgical practices
Supervisor: Dr Adam Ledger
PhD Drama and Theatre Studies


My PhD thesis is focussed on adaptations of classical Greek tragedies that utilise forms of postmodern dramaturgy. Using recent historical and contemporary examples I am investigating the relationship between individual identities, the zeitgeist of specific cultural moments and how these factors inform the means in which canonised narratives are re-imagined on the theatrical stage.
