1 A Ham Funeral : Patrick White, Collaboration and Neil Armfield Elizabeth Schafer , 2011 single work criticism
— Appears in: Australian Studies , vol. 3 no. 2011;
'The work of theatre practitioners - especially directors, performers, designers - has much to add to the field of Patrick White studies; however, there has been little sustained discussion of White's plays in performance and the insights theatre practitioners can bring to White scholarship. This article focuses on the White productions of director Neil Armfield, especially his 1989 Sydney Theatre Company Ham Funeral and examines Armfield's theatrically tested thesis that metatheatre is the key to White's dramaturgy. The article also looks at the deployment of comedy and the gothic in Ham Funeral and Armfield's later White productions - A Cheery Soul and A Night on Bald Mountain.' (Author's abstract)

1 1 y separately published work icon Lilian Baylis : A Biography Elizabeth Schafer , Hatfield : University of Hertfordshire Press The Society for Theatre Research , 2006 Z1427870 2006 single work biography Based on new and original research, this biography documents the life of Lilian Baylis, an esteemed theatrical producer and manager who helped found the British National Theatre, the Royal Ballet, and the English National Opera. Setting out to discover how Baylis was able to manage two theatres and three companies, bring the very best of high culture to working people, and still haul in a profit, this biography looks beyond the famous comic anecdotes that surround her life and discovers the private woman behind the public persona. From her early career as a musician and dancer to the career-changing breaks she offered to actors such as Alec Guinness and Laurence Olivier, this insightful work reveals how Baylis achieved so much and the personal cost of her successes.
