Project MUSE - American Experimental Theatre: Then and NowExperimental Theatre Then and Now Sam Shepard The death of Sam Shepard, on July 27, generated an outpouring of genuine sadness at the loss of an incomparable voice in the American theatre. Some will say he punctured the myth of masculinity, and others that he represented a certain kind of lost manliness.

It examines the variety of ways the theatre's educational potential has been harnessed and theorised, the claims made for its value and the tension bettween theatre as education and theatre as 'art': between theatre's aesthetic dimenstion and the 'utilitarian' or 'instrumental' role for which it has so often been pressed into service. Following a preliminary discussion of some key theoretical approaches to aesthetics, dramatic art and learning and, above all, the relationships between them, the study is organised into two broad chronological periods: early developments in European and American theatre up to the end of World War II, and participatory theatre and education since World War II. Within each period, a cluster of key themes is introduced and then re-visited and examined through a number of specific examples - seen within their cultural contexts - in subsequent chapters.
