In New Labour's empathetic regime, how did diverse voices scrutinize its etiquettes of articulation and audibility? Using the voice as cultural evidence, Voice and New Writing explores what it means to 'have' a voice in mainstream theatre and for newly included voices to negotiate with the institutions that 'find' and 'represent' their identities.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Inchley's impressively researched, interdisciplinary exploration of the UK's theatrical voice is a welcome and original enquiry that appropriately positions dramatic audio expression within the political climate dominated by the Tony Blair administration of 1997 - 2007. ... Voice and New Writing, 1997 - 2007 can claim to have made a valuable contribution in this regard and may help to inform the positioning of `the voice' at the centre of national expression and identity, especially relevant given the current political and cultural climate." (Lloyd Peters, Journal of Contemporary Drama in English, Vol. 4 (2), November, 2016)

"Inchley (Queen Mary, Univ. of London, UK) makes a case for the ability of theater to inspire democratic voices. Exploring voice as `scripted and trained, performed and perceived,' the author dissects and challenges voice as political authority within a democratic debate. ... Includes photographs and detailed notes. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Graduate students, researchers." (J. Artman, Choice, Vol. 53 (5), January, 2016)
