Autobiography and Performance offers a comprehensive overview of the use of autobiography in performance. Examining the work of key practitioners, Heddon argues that autobiographical performances

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Heddon's book, covering, as it does, such an immense variety of practices, examined through a well focussed theoretical lens, is one which should be recommended to students and researchers alike - it will become a first point of reference for anyone working in the field.' Maggie B. Gale, University of Manchester, Studies in Theatre and Performance 29.3 'Heddon's book is a much-needed sustained discussion of the subject [auto-biography and performance]...[it has] a direct, honest, lively and engaging style of writing which invites and stimulates dialogue and debate.' Nicola Shaughnessy, University of Kent Theatre Research International 34.2 2009 'engaged, engaging and fully embodied.' Jennie Klein, Contemporary Theatre Review, 19. 'Heddon provides a nuanced exposition of contemporary critical concerns that are central to many university courses and her ability to match those concerns to the study and practice of autobiographical performance will make this book a challenging resource for students and teachers working in a number of areas in the higher education sector.' - Auto/Biography Studies
