Join us for the launch of Bill Angus's latest book Intelligence and Metadrama in Early Modern Theatre.

Everyone welcome, light refreshments will be served.

Intelligence and Metadrama in the Early Modern Theatre offers insight into why the early modern stage abounds with informer and intelligencer figures. Analysing both the nature of intelligence at the time and the metadrama that such characters generate, Angus highlights the significance of intrigue and corruption to dramatic narrative and structure. His study of metadrama reveals some of the most fundamental questions being posed about the legitimacy of authority, authorship and audience interpretation in this seminal era of English drama.

The launch will be followed by a Creative Writing Showcase of fresh new voices from Massey University's School of English and Media Studies at 7pm.
