This special issue of Comparative Drama, "The Audience as Player: Interactive Theater Over the Years," seeks essays that explore plays and productions in which members of the audience are not just voyeurs in the house but participants, players in the onstage drama. This enhanced "role" for the audience has, surely, philosophical and aesthetic implications, not to mention practical consequence during an actual production.
This interdisciplinary conference seeks to explore the complex webs of interconnection between the long eighteenth century and the 'long' twentieth century, from 1900 to the present.
