The boom in interest in theatre studies at school and in further and higher education signals a new interest in the relationship between the theory and the practice of performance. The best tool you can give the learner is a good theory, and from this collection of theories, learners can choose the tools that best suit their approach to theatre studies. They range from reception theory and semiotics, to the anthropology of the audience and the carnivalesque to hermeneutics and computing.
