How to Have Jazz Hands in an Epidemic:
musical theatre as a response to AIDS
Emily Garside completed her PhD on transnational theatre, exploring UK productions of American AIDS-related theatre, in 2015. She is an engaging speaker, having presented her research not only to fellow academics, but also in the West End as an accompaniment to recent productions of ‘AIDS plays’, as they have come to be know, such as Andrew Keates’ recent revival of As Is at the Trafalgar Studios. She is currently working on a book proposal, and preparing a workshop on Angels in America with the National Theatre.
