John H. Muse

John H. Muse is Assistant Professor in English and Theater and Performance Studies at University of Chicago. His research explores work that tests the perceived boundaries of media: plays that resemble visual art, poems, or novels in dramatic form, metatheatre, and digital, impossible, or otherwise virtual theatre. His first book, Microdramas (Michigan, 2017), explores brevity in theatre since the late nineteenth century and argues that very short plays reveal fundamental assumptions about theatre’s limits and possibilities.
