Dr Helen Freshwater

My research focuses upon twentieth century British theatre and contemporary performance. I have published on censorship; audiences, participation and interactivity; archive theory and historiography; and British physical theatres. I continue to track the evolution of our understanding of audiences and have an ongoing interest in contemporary British performance made for, with, and about children. Recent publications include a book chapter on responses to Matilda The Musical, and a piece on 'the people formerly known as the audience' for Cambridge University Press.
