In 1974, a group of determined, young high school actors started doing plays under the name of Steppenwolf Theatre Company, eventually taking residence in the basement of a church in Highland Park, a suburb of Chicago. Thus began their unlikely journey to become one of the most prominent theatre companies in the world. Steppenwolf Theatre Company has changed the face of American Theatre with its innovative approach that blends dynamic ensemble performance, honest, straightforward acting, and bold, thought-provoking stories to create compelling theatre. This is the first book to chronicle this iconic theatre company, offering an account of its early years and development, its work, and the methodologies that have made it one of the most influential ensemble theatres today. Through extensive, in-depth interviews conducted by the author with ensemble members, this book reveals the story of Steppenwolf's miraculous rise from basement to Broadway and beyond. Interviewees include co-founders Jeff Perry, Gary Sinise and Terry Kinney, along a myriad of ensemble, staff, board members and others.

"True West is a character study that examines the relationship between Austin, a screenwriter, and his older brother Lee. It is set in the kitchen of their mother's home 40 miles east of Los Angeles. Austin is house-sitting while their mother is in Alaska, and there he is confronted by his brother, who proceeds to bully his way into staying at the house and using Austin's car. In addition, the screenplay which Austin is pitching to his connection in Hollywood somehow gets taken over by the pushy con-man tactics of Lee, and the brothers find themselves forced to cooperate in the creation of a story that will make or break both their lives"--Sam-Shepard.com.

‘Dr. Radosavljević has an excellent and extensive grasp of her subject, and deep understanding of not only the history of these groups, but how they function, and how each contributes to the field of ensemble theatre.’ – David Crespy, University of Missouri, USA Questions of ensemble – what it is, how it works – are both inherent to a variety of Western theatre traditions, and re-emerging and evolving in striking new ways in the twenty-first century. The Contemporary Ensemble draws together an unprecedented range of original interviews with world-renowned theatre-makers in order to directly address both the former and latter concerns. Reflecting on ‘the ensemble way of working’ within this major new resource are figures including: Michael Boyd, Hermann Wündrich, Yuri Butusov, Max Stafford-Clark, Elizabeth LeCompte, Lyn Gardner, Adriano Shaplin, Phelim McDermott; and Emma Rice; representing companies including: The RSC; The Berliner Ensemble; The Satirikon Theatre; Out of Joint; The Wooster Group; Kneehigh Theatre; Song of the Goat; The Riot Group; The Neo-Futurists; Shadow Casters; and Ontroerend Goed. All 22 interviews were conducted especially for the collection, and draw upon the author’s rich background working as scholar, educator and dramaturg with a variety of ensembles. The resulting compendium radically re-situates the ensemble in the context of globalisation, higher education and simplistic understandings of ‘text-based’ and ‘devised’ theatre practice, and traces a compelling new line through the contemporary theatre landscape.

August Strindberg: Fräulein Julie. Naturalistisches Trauerspiel Fröken Julie. Entstanden 1888, Erstdruck 1889, Uraufführung am 14. März 1889 in Kopenhagen. Hier in der deutschen Übersetzung von Ernst Brausewetter. Neuausgabe mit einer Biographie des Autors. Herausgegeben von Karl-Maria Guth. Berlin 2016. Umschlaggestaltung von Thomas Schultz-Overhage unter Verwendung des Bildes: William Merritt Chase, Porträt einer Dame, um 1900. Gesetzt aus der Minion Pro, 11 pt. Über den Autor: 1849 in die kinderreiche Familie eines patriarchalisch-strengen Kolonialwarenhändlers in Stockholm geboren, studiert August Johan Strindberg Medizin und Literatur in Uppsala. Nach kurzen schauspielerischen Versuchen widmet er sich als Dramatiker dem Naturalismus. Er lebt zeitweilig in Berlin und Paris, bevor er 1901 endgültig nach Stockholm zurückkehrt. Psychotisch veranlagt, neigt er Okkultismus und Alchimie zu und durchlebt schwere Krisen, die er vor allem in seinem Roman »Inferno« verarbeitet und entwickelt einen zunehmend mythisch inspirierten expressionistischen Stil. Strindberg hinterlässt über sechzig Dramen und je zehn Romane und Novellensammlungen als er 1912 als bedeutendster Dichter Schwedens an Magenkrebs in Stockholm stirbt.
