Sojourn Theatre Company: A Case Study in Community-Based Theatre
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis examines contemporary community-based theatre processes and efficacy through a case study of Sojourn Theatre Company. Chapter II overviews Sojourn's production history and explores the company's style. Chapter III discusses the theatre-making process, from project conceptualization to performance. Chapter IV examines approaches for assessing Sojourn's efficacy. The research was based on company interviews, primary observation, archive materials, and audience reviews. The results of the study indicate that Sojourn relies heavily on audience engagement and community participation to assess its work. In addition, both a production's purpose and its target audience play a large role in determining efficacy.
