‘A big part of my life’: a qualitative study of the impact of theatre.
This paper explores the impact that theatre can have on its audiences, both immediately and over time.
The article evaluates the existing literature on impact and critically reviews a number of benefits models. Through a textual analysis of 42 semi-structured depth interviews, the paper deconstructs the concept of impact and rearticulates it in audiences’ terms.
