Publications: Critical Essays on British South Asian Theatre and British Asian Theatres - A Documented History, edited by Graham Ley and Sarah Dadswell.

Culmination of research project on British South Asian theatre

Two books that stem directly from the AHRC-funded project held in the Drama Department (2004-2009) on British Asian theatre have now been published.

Between them, they provide intricate detail on a large number of British Asian theatre companies in their formative years, and criticism and assessment from a wide range of voices on that and more recent work by individuals and companies.

The books represent a major contribution to the resources for further study and for teaching, and help to place this important aspect of contemporary British theatre-making firmly on the map. More information on the books can be found on the British Asian project website under Research on the Drama webpages, and the books can be purchased online at (see under Performance Studies).
