The 21st century has seen an ethical turn in theatre studies. Several significant recent publications have traced how plays and performances explore ethical concerns through aesthetic means. They have helped develop new terms of thinking about theatrical spectatorship and the ethics of theatrical representation. In our one-day symposium “Ethics on Stage”, we will use this framework to investigate current concerns in contemporary Anglophone playwriting from a political and ethical perspective.
