MEDIA REVIEWS
'Rare is the academic book that jumps out at you from the page and demands to be read aloud; rarer is the book that combines excitement and readability with nuanced scholarly discourse. This book is a rare and delightful treasure.' African Affairs '... this is an unusual offering; an academic book which is delightful to read... What makes the book so unique, lively and informed is that in each case the writers have actually worked with the companies they describe over relatively longperiods of time, so that they are not writing only as academics... Anyone with the slightest interest in West African cultures, performance or theatre should immediately rush out and buy this book.' - Jane Plastow in Leeds African Studies Bulletin '... nowhere else is it possible to obtain such detailed in-depth information about specific conditions of play-creation, administration, rehearsal and performance, linked to psycho-social, ideological and aesthetic analyses.' - David Kerr in African Theatre in Development
