Research output: Book/ReportBook



This book is the first major study of amateur theatre, and takes an historical approach to understand the cultural and communitarian value of contemporary amateur theatre. The request to double-weight is based on the considerable body of archival and ethnographic research undertaken and analysed in two AHRC funded projects on amateur theatre, led by Nicholson as PI, who is also credited with writing 40% of the substantial (11600 word) co-authored book. Extensive research materials analysed the histories, craft, heritage, temporalities, and labour of amateur theatre, and concludes an analysis of amateur theatre in the twenty-first century amateur turn.
