With a Foreword by Dan Rebellato, this book offers up a detailed exploration of Scottish playwright David Greig's work with particular attention to globalization, ethics, and the spectator. It makes the argument that Greig's theatre works by undoing, cracking, or breaking apart myriad elements to reveal the holed, porous nature of all things. Starting with a discussion of Greig's engagement with shamanism and arguing for holed theatre as a response to globalization, for Greig's works' politics of aesthethics, and for the holed spectator as part of an affective ecology of transfers, this book discusses some of Greig's most representative political theatre from Europe (1994) to The Events (2013), concluding with an exploration of Greig's theatre's world-forming quality.
