"Facebooked: Romeo and Juliet" as Educational Theatre: An Improbable Fiction?
Research in Drama Education, v21 n3 p373-384 2016
This article addresses intersections of digital technology and Drama Education, with attention to an undergraduate playbuilding project focused on digital citizenship. It explores the challenges involved in structuring a technologically interactive presentation, as well as the positive impact of the piece achieved through the interplay of two related contexts: (a) the depiction of social media forms in the text itself and (b) the use of these forms as a medium of presentation. The article suggests further exploration of digital citizenship and intermedial approaches in undergraduate Drama Education programmes.
