Dr. Paul Castagno will be published in Theatre Forum's June issue

Theatre Forum: An International Journal of Innovative Performance has accepted Dr. Paul Castagno's full-length article on Tramadautore and contemporary Italian Theatre for publication in its June 2016 issue.

Theatre Forum has long been respected as a top peer-reviewed journal in theatre studies and its emphasis on innovative international theatre will bring Dr. Castagno's work on contemporary playwriting and production to a large group of subscribers both in academia and in the profession.

The work for this article was an outcome and sidebar to Dr. Castagno's lecture this summer at Tramadautore in Piccolo Teatro. As he extended his stay, he was able to view many productions and meet and discuss works with major Italian playwrights and directors, both in Milan and later in Viterbo. Theatre in Italy is much different from American or UK fare. As a result of his lecture, and the impact of his prior publications in contemporary playwriting, Dr. Castagno has been asked by the project director to curate and edit an anthology of collectively written plays by EU playwrights.
