Queer Exceptions

A new book on solo performance in the UK and Western Europe, out now from Manchester University Press.

Hello – I’m Stephen Greer, a theatre academic and cultural critic based in Glasgow, Scotland. I’m the author of Contemporary British Queer Performance (Palgrave 2012) and the new book Queer exceptions: solo performance in neoliberal times (MUP 2018) as well as a range of essays and articles about British and European theatre.  I most often write about live performance and the politics of sexuality and gender, but have broad interests in the cultural politics of visual art, TV, film and video-games.

My current research focuses on the contentious relationship between contemporary performance and neoliberalism.
