A book by Varndean College’s IB Co-ordinator, Dr Sean McEvoy, had been shortlisted for the 2017 Theatre Book Prize. The award will be made at a ceremony at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, in London in May.
Theatrical Unrest: Ten Riots in the History of the Stage, 1601-2004, published by Routledge, tells the story of how plays have inspired acts of violence from the time Shakespeare up until the present day.
Theatrical Unrest is Sean’s fifth book. His most recent is Tragedy: The Basics, also published by Routledge, which came out in January.
