This insightful and engaging new title in the Theatre & series explores the various connections between theatre and Islam. Drawing on both historical and recent examples to trace their relationship and offer a new perspective on a topical subject, this persuasive text argues against a long-standing assumption that Islam has worked in opposition to theatrical presentation. From the thirteenth century puppet plays of Ibn Daniyal to Islamic themes in twenty-first century productions, Theatre and Islam is chronologically wide-ranging and ambitious in its scope.

Ambitious yet concise, this is the perfect introduction for undergraduate and postgraduate students of Religious Studies, Islamic Studies, Middle Eastern Studies and Drama.
