Stage life of the props - Andrew Sofer

The Stage Life of Props wants Andrew Sofer to reproduce the dimension of certain props that literature reviewers are not supposed to see, and then to show that these props are not only theatre accessoires, but rather the theatre's timemachines. Through case histories that examine the Eucharistic waffle on the mediaeval stage, the bloodied tissue on the Elizabethan stage, the head on the Jacobin stage, the fans on the restoration and early stage of the 18th centr. and the weapon on the contemporary stage, Andrew Sofer shows how stage props continually frustrate tragic conventions and revive theatre use.

Focusing on certain items, Sofer also gives us a comprehensive story of half a millenium of stage story as seen through the prop's apparatus, showing that stage props as physical phantoms are a way for dramatists to inspire stage actions, challenge theatre practices and revive drama forms.
