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

Research

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.
