Sažetak
The explosion of new theatre writing in Brittan during and since the nineties contrasted with a death of original plays on continental Europe east and west. Sanja Nikcevic attributes this in part to the dominance over the previous decades of the role of leading directors, who increasingly sought out raw materials to shape production conforming to their own or their company's ideas. She traces the attempts in a number of countries to correct the imbalance by encouraging new writing through worships and festivals - yet also how the explosion and importation of the British 'in-your-face' style then affected the kind of new writing that was considered innovative and acceptable at such events. She argues against the claims made for the political significance of plays such as Sarah Kane Blasted suggesting rather that the acceptance of the normality of violence without reference to its social context negated the possibility of remedial action.
