Author Talk: Max Shulman

Presented by UCCS Visual and Performing Arts: Theatre and Dance Program at Ent Center for the Arts

It is the first work to trace the history of addiction and drug use on the US stage and screen, examining the ways in which performance created the way we imagine addiction. From blood-and-thunder melodramas of the 1900s, forgotten Broadway hits of the 1920, the jazz cabarets of the 1930, to Eugene O’Neill’s canonical Long Day’s Journey, this work demonstrates how performance has influenced the policies, treatment, and awareness of addiction in the US imagination. Copies of the book will be available for purchase.
