Recent shifts in the theatrical landscape have had corresponding implications for dramaturgy. The way we think about theatre and performance today has changed our approaches to theatre making and composition. Emerging new aesthetics and new areas of dramaturgical work such as live art, devised and physical theatre, experimental performance, and dance demand new approaches and sensibilities. New Dramaturgy: International Perspectives on Theory and Practice is the first book to explore new dramaturgy in depth, and considers how our thinking about dramaturgy and the role of the dramaturg has been transformed. Edited by Katalin Trencsényi and Bernadette Cochrane, New Dramaturgy: International Perspectives on Theory and Practice provides an unrivalled resource for practitioners, scholars, and students.

How do you save your son from the vile grips of a bad man? You find one that's more evil. The fight against my ex-husband cost me everything - my job, my house, and the only family I had left. With him, I experienced the worst of life, so chasing the Devil's Cartel's President down a darkened highway in the middle of the night didn't seem so scary. On the surface, Damon Judge was cold, calculative, and cruel. But underneath his tough exterior, his leathers, and his ink, he was charming and passionate. He was a father who'd already faced my greatest fear...and lost. I knew better than to exchange one evil for another, but Judge was my last resort. I needed him to save me from suffering the same fate he did. And I wasn't taking 'no' for an answer.

HELL IS TOO GOOD A PLACE FOR A SADIST. . . . Twenty years after ex-CIA special ops agent Ian Wallace watched a KGB colonel brutally murder the love of his life and their unborn child, he’s still wishing the monster Vladimir Ivanchenko had killed him off, too. Endlessly haunted by nightmarish memories of torture, Wallace, the fanatically conservative private investigator, can’t seem to escape the bowels of Moscow’s Lubyanka prison, even while reaping the comforts of life in suburban Boston. But when the devil himself comes to Beantown on another twisted mission, who better to hunt down Ivanchenko—the Russian mafia don now deemed the most dangerous man in the world—than the fueled-by-guilt and hungry-for-revenge Wallace? All he must do to earn the forty grand the CIA offers him for the task is dedicate the next two weeks of his life to guarding Ivanchenko’s target—an obnoxious, greedy, and big government–loving MIT professor, whose research on Ballistic Missile Defense is a matter of national security. That, and partner up with the irresistibly sexy and tough-as-nails Kathy Donahue. Straight from the bleak deserts of war-torn Afghanistan, she just might be the secret to opening up Wallace’s sealed and scarred heart. Tension between the highly experienced agents builds, but Wallace’s bloodthirsty desire for Ivanchenko’s demise reveals his own evil nature, scaring Donahue away. And, as friends and enemies sacrifice their lives to harbor and reveal secrets, Wallace doesn’t know to what maniacal extreme he will go to bury his own.

In his debut short story collection, poet and novelist Patrick Hicks reminds us of one such constant in all our lives—death. In these stories, most of which are set firmly in the heart of the country, the characters, all solid, well-meaning, hardworking people, are beset by tragedies both large and small, natural and unnatural. In the opening piece, "57 Gatwick," which won the 2012 Glimmer Train Emerging Writer Fiction award, a terrorist bombing of a commercial airliner over the city of Duluth, Minnesota gives the town coroner a new task beyond the collection and identification of victims' bodies, thus restoring hope to a shattered community. In "Burn Unit," a lone, misanthropic woman who rescues stray and abused animals, in turn rescues her horribly burned niece from a neglectful family and a life of despair. An unpopular teenage girl discovers a hidden talent in the wake of a devastating storm in "Picasso and the Tornado." In the "The Lazarus Bomb," the crew of a B-17 bomber crew flying missions over Germany in WWII is suddenly imbued with the ability to give life rather than rain death. With gentle humor and deft, lyrical prose, this collection demonstrates that, despite these tragedies, unlooked-for miracles do occur.
