Synopses & Reviews
Dialogue between film and theatre studies is frequently hampered by the lack of a shared vocabulary. Stage-Play and Screen-Play sets out to remedy this, mapping out an intermedial space in which both film and theatre might be examined.
Each chapter s evaluation of the processes and products of stage-to-screen and screen-to-stage transfer is grounded in relevant, applied contexts. Michael Ingham draws upon the growing field of adaptation studies to present case studies ranging from Martin McDonagh s The Cripple of Inishmaan and RSC Live s simulcast of Richard II to F.W. Murnau s silent Tartuff, Peter Bogdanovich s film adaptation of Michael Frayn s Noises Off, and Akiro Kurosawa s Ran, highlighting the multiple interfaces between media.
Offering a fresh insight into the ways in which film and theatre communicate dramatic performances, this volume is a must-read for students and scholars of stage and screen.
