9780773461253: Images of Mental Illness Through Text and Performance (Studies in Theatre Arts)
Review:

"Although theatre practitioners have made great strides in altering customarily negative images of marginalized groups, perceptions of the mentally ill have received scant attention. The mentally ill are ridiculed with pejorative stereotypes and misconceptions frequently embedded in theatrical characterizations.. Images of Mental Illness Through Text and Performance is an innovative text that speaks to the complex manifestations of mental illness in dramatic literature... The employed methodology synthesizes the history of mental illness, with script analysis forging a comprehensive examination of mental illness through fact and fiction. The historical evolution of madness and its heterogeneous methods of treatment are contextualized within socio-political constructs mirrored in dramatic literature and film... Dramaturgy is the most pervasive genre subliminally disseminating cultural ideologies through theatre, television and film. Negative images of mental illness permeating media cerebrally formulate collective perspective and attitudes in the audience that are accepted as factual and are often embraced by civic and social institutions to differentiate between normative and aberrant behaviors; and determine how a person will respond to the mentally ill... Positing mental illness as the final bastion of societal intolerance, and cognizant that characterizations represented in entertainment are include to maintain the status quo of stereotypical images of the mentally ill, this text challenges students, actors, and artists to reassess interpretations of such images in an effort to create proactive compassionate paradigms. The essays inspire readers, playwrights, and performing artists to abandon the misconceptions in connection with mental illness, and assume the responsibility of transitioning beyond stereotypes of the mentally ill and advance to the noble calling of dramatists, that demands creation of honest characterizations of a marginalized, rapidly increasing subculture in today's society." - (from the Commendatory Preface) Elizabeth Amelia Hadley, Simmons College"

From the Publisher:

Theoretical inquiry into the representation of mental illness on stage has not kept pace with theatre scholarship relating to images of marginalized populations as presented on stage, nor with developments in current thinking about mental disease. This collection examines the dynamics of characterization and the problematics of representation within the context of new trends in pharmacology and reconfigured definitions of mental disease, at a time when unprecedented attention is being given to the complex realities of living with mental disorders.
