Theatre and theatregoing was central to the cultural life of later eighteenth-century Britain. In this engaging work, Jean I. Marsden explores the playhouse as a source of emotion during a period when the ability to feel demonstrated moral worth. Using first-hand accounts, reviews, and illustrations to complement the drama of the era, Marsden examines why both critics and audiences elevated the theatre above the pulpit and how they experienced the plays and performances that they witnessed. Tears and even fainting fits were a common reaction to powerful productions, and playwrights sought to harness this emotion. The book explores this intersection of text, performance, and affect in a series of case studies of plays exploring British liberty, empire and the evils of antisemitism. With a focus on emotional response, Theatres of Feeling delivers a new approach to dramatic literature and performance, one that moves beyond more limited studies of text or performance.

This book applies three overlapping bodies of work to generate fresh approaches to the study of criminal justice in England and Ireland between 1660 and 1850. First, crime and justice are interpreted as elements of the "public sphere" of opinion about government. Second, "performativity" and speech act theory are considered in the context of the Anglo-Irish criminal trial, which was transformed over the course of this period from an unmediated exchange between victim and accused to a fully lawyerized performance. Thirdly, the authors apply recent scholarship on the history of emotions, particularly relating to the constitution of "emotional communities" and changes in "emotional regimes".

Facility management brings what advantages to theatres Theatre performance needs performers own proficient performance skills to perform their music, or art performances to let audiences feel happy and satisfactory to see or listen their performances in the theatre hall, instead of performers their individual performing factor. Facility management (FM) in the theatre any facilities, e.g. performing hall, toilets, seats, theatre cater restaurants, car parking location etc. different theatre inside and outside facilities may also influence any one theatre audience whether he / she can feel enjoyable to see or listen any one art or music perfofmance, because if they feel the theatre facilities are poor quality. This theatre poor facilities feeling factor may also influence they expect to go to this theatre to see any art performances or listen any music performance again. Hence, instead of theatre performancers their individual performance skillful factor, any theatres their whole theatre inside and outside facilities will may also influence any one theatre music or art audience to choose to buy ticket to enter this theatre to see or listen any performances again. So, any one theatre facilities satisfactory feeling may also be another important factor to influence the theatre performance tickets sale number. I shall attempt to indicate the different kinds of facilities aspects, that any one theatre ought need to considerate their facilities improvement aspects issue as below: Firstly, we need to know whether what theatre essential facilities elements may be. Then, I shall discuss how to manage theatre facilities in orde to improve its performance to assist any one performance to raise their performance level and bring more listening music or seeing art performance satisfactory and comfortable feeling to every theatre audience, when they are sitting one to two hours, even more than two hours in the theatre/ Hence, whole theatre inside facilities may influence any one audience individual satisfactory feeling, instead of seeing the art performers or listening the music performers their performances in the theatre halls. Although any one theatre audience makes decision to buy the ticket that their aims is general listening the music performance or seeing the art performance., but when they must need to sit long time in the theatre seats to enjoy any performances in the theatre, the extra ( another) theatre facilities factor may also influence their satisfacgory feeling, e.g. if the theatre performance is music performance, all audience feel the theatre sound system facilities are poor to influence their listening music performance satisfactory feeling, e.g. more noise or feeling difficulty to listen soft music from the performers. Then, the whole music performance quality will be influenced to worse listening standard leve, it is not due to the music performer individual music playing skillful aspect, it is possible due to the theatre whole music sound system facilities or music sound equipment can not achieve the actural music sound satisfactory listening performance standard level effect to let any one music audience feels difficulty to listen the music performers how play their music performance proficiently. So, it seems that theatre music sound system facilities may influence any one music performance standard level to be worse to the whole music poor performance process. It is not possible to any one music performance individual music playing skills whether he can play proficient music sound system facilities to improve or repair frequently to cause the whole music performance quality level to become worse indirectly. Hence, theatre music sound system facilities which may influence whole music performance level either to raise or reduce indiirectly.

Emotion explores how drama, theatre and contemporary performance present the emotions. From Shakespeare to Stanislavski, from Brecht to Caryl Churchill, drama and theatre inform and warn about the emotions. The book investigates how concepts of emotion are communicated in performance and therefore in society. Since emotion is artistically staged, its composition and impact can be discussed and analyzed, and thought of in relation to interdisciplinary approaches. The book explores the ways in which the emotions, emotional feelings, mood, affect and sensations were and are expressed, communicated and recognized within the language of theatrical traditions, contemporary performance and future trends. Readers are encouraged to consider how emotion is dramatically, aurally and visually developed to create innovative performance. Case studies include Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, Brecht's The Caucasian Chalk Circle, Ibsen's A Doll's House, The Wooster Group's productions and the drama of Caryl Churchill. By way of these developed case studies, readers will access new methodologies and approaches for their own exploration of 'emotion' as a performance component. Volumes are supported by further online resources including illustrative material, questions and exercises.

Two outstanding examples of socialist-themed plays are combined in this remarkable volume. The Conspiracy of Feelings by Yurii Olesha (1899-1960) is based on his highly respected short novel Envy about the struggle between the old and new in Soviet society. The play, called The Conspiracy of Feelings, is not a simple adaptation, but an original work that reconceived the novel. The play explores the precarious position of the intelligentsia in the new collective state. The Little Theatre of The Green Goose was written by Konstanty Ildefons Galczynski (1905-53) who was one of Poland's most beloved poets. After World War II, he began work as a playwright, inventing a colorful theatre troupe of performers (animal and human) and contributing a new instalment of The Little Theatre of the Green Goose each week to Przekroj, the Cracow literary magazine. Intended for reading only, The Green Goose went unperformed in Galczynski's life and was finally staged in 1955 and gained a permanent place in the theatre and became a force for the creation of the new Polish drama that flourished in the 1960s.

Forms of Emotion analyses how drama, theatre and contemporary performance present emotion and its human and nonhuman diversity. This book explores the emotions, emotional feelings, mood, and affect, which make up a spectrum of 'emotion', to illuminate theatrical knowledge and practice and reflect the distinctions and debates in philosophy, neuroscience, psychology, and other disciplines. This study asserts that specific forms of emotion are intentionally unified in drama, theatre, and performance to convey meaning, counteract separation and subversively champion emotional freedom. The book progressively shows that the dramatic and theatrical representation of the nonhuman reveals how human dominance is offset by emotional connection with birds, animals, and the natural environment. This book will be of great interest to students and researchers interested in the emotions and affect in dramatic literature, theatre studies, performance studies, psychology, and philosophy as well as artists working with emotionally expressive performance.

Why do so many writers and audiences turn to theatre to resolve overwhelming topics of pain and suffering? This collection of essays from international scholars reconsiders how theatre has played a crucial part in encompassing and preserving significant human experiences. Plays about global issues, including terrorism and war, are increasing in attention from playwrights, scholars, critics and audiences. In this contemporary collection, a gathering of diverse contributors explain theatre's special ability to generate dialogue and promote healing when dealing with human tragedy. This collection discusses over 30 international plays and case studies from different time periods, all set in a backdrop of war. The four sections document British and American perspectives on theatres of war, global perspectives on theatres of war, perspectives on Black Watch and, finally, perspectives on The Great Game: Afghanistan. Through this, a range of international scholars from different disciplines imaginatively rethink theatre's unique ability to mediate the impacts and experiences of war. Featuring contributions from a variety of perspectives, this book provides a wealth of revealing insights into why authors and audiences have always turned to the unique medium of theatre to make sense of war.

Sentimentalism, Ethics and the Culture of Feeling defends feeling against customary distrust or condescension by showing that the affective turn of the eighteenth-century cult of sentiment, despite its sometimes surreal manifestations, has led to a positive culture of feeling. The very reaction against sentimentalism has taught us to identity sentimentality. Fiction, moreover, remains a principal means not just of discriminating quality of feeling but of appreciating its essentially imaginative nature.

Beth Conway Shervey examines the cultural consequences of an Equity theatre in a small midwestern farm town. Although many in the Midwest and beyond know the story of The Little Theatre On The Square in Sullivan, Illinois, Shervey is the first to consider what the existence of such a theatre means to perceptions of life in the town. To tell the story of Sullivan and of its star theatre in a cornfield from the perspective of the residents involved, Shervey uses oral history and and dozens of photographs by David W. Mobley, the theatre’s longtime photographer. Sullivan resembles most small towns in the Midwest, and The Little Theatre differs little from most professional summer stock theatres. Yet taken together, the small town and its theatre are clearly unusual, and the existence of the theatre obviously alters perceptions of life in the small town. Before the theatre opened in 1957, Sullivan decidedly was a product of its time: the town sported a strong local chapter of the WCTU, moral people avoided taverns, liberals and Catholics were the minorities, and the population was predominantly white. While the theatre didn't effect instant change, it did introduce people to Sullivan who were obviously different. Stars such as Betty Grable, Cesar Romero, Margaret Hamilton, and Pat O'Brien came into town. Aspiring actors and those behind the scenes also mingled with the residents of Sullivan. As a result, Shervey finds, Sullivan faced such issues as racism, homophobia, urban liberalism, and alcohol consumption at a much faster rate than similar towns. For some, the theatre disrupted a sense of the normal; for others, the theatre made life in Sullivan different and interesting, breaking the restrictive bonds typically associated with small towns.
