"Plays which use people's actual words as the basis for their drama are not a new phenomenon. But from the stages of national theatre to fringe venues and universities everywhere, 'verbatim' theatre, as it has come to be known, is currently enjoying unprecedented attention and success. It has also attracted high-profile criticism and impassioned debate."
