A vibrant introduction to theatre that engages with stories, conditions and experiences of migration. Arguing that migration is crucially about encounters with foreignness, Emma Cox traces international histories of migration and considers key issues in contemporary performance - from Cape Town and Melbourne, to London and Toronto.

Emma Cox is Lecturer in Drama and Theatre, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK. She is editor of Staging Asylum: Contemporary Australian Plays about Refugees.
