Cancer And Uncontrollable Growth (of Meaning).-- The Arc of Cancer History is (Not So) Long, and Definitely Bends.-- Cancer & Commotion.-- The First Time's Always Painful: Cancer and Personal Precedent.-- Not Your Mother's Illness Drama: Cancer Beyond Sentimentality.-- Conclusion.
This title confronts the difficult relationship between theatre and cancer. It explores representations of cancer in fictional worlds and autobiographical performances while also highlighting work that reimagines and reinvigorates the genre of 'Cancer Performance'. Challenging conventional narratives which rely on the binary of tragedy versus survival, Brian Lobel argues for an alternative approach to understanding cancer in relation to theatre. Concise yet thought-provoking, this book is ideal for undergraduate and postgraduate students of theatre, performance and disability studies.
