Abstract
This research is an autobiographical case study of ‘urgent theatre’ with specific reference to the original musical theatre production, Freedom. The study attempts to map influences, approaches, artistic and creative decisions and choices, drawn from my experience as a playwright and director. The study draws from political theatre in South Africa, studies of violence and theatre, and theoretical performance perspectives using autobiography as a methodological principle. This case study will seek to define urgent theatre, its processes and practice, and its aesthetic as a form of South African theatre
