The research is contained in a booklet titled An Exploration into the Impact of Drama and Theatre on Policy co-authored by Mary Moynihan and Rose Carney, published by Smashing Times Theatre Company Ltd in 2005.

Abstract

An Exploration into the Impact of Drama and Theatre on Policy aims to determine the influence, if any, that drama and theatre can have on policy for example in relation to social policy and issues such as marginalization, disadvantage, poverty and social exclusion. The booklet explores national and international models of drama and theatre practice for influencing policy including work from Smashing Times Theatre Company.
