David Ian Rabey


'Rabey mobilizes powerful metaphors, almost as responses in kind to Barker's lines, in sentences that have the quality of muscular poetry... At the border between criticism and theatre, Politics and Desire stands opposite Brecht's Messingkauf Dialogues, challenging critical boundaries of theatre, and inviting us to experience the catastrophic throes of tragic transformation.' - James D. Balestrieri, Theatre Three
'Rabey's criticism in these books offers a meditation, a critical and lyrical vision, not merely of Barker's theatre but of theatre's place in a 21st-century culture' - George Hunka, Superfluities: A Journal
