Rick Cousins, MA in Theatre Studies Graduate, is the 2017 winner of Ann Saddlemyer Award

Posted on Friday, September 15, 2017

The Ann Saddlemyer Award honours a monograph published during the past year that exemplifies the strength of theatre scholarship in Canada. The winner of the award for 2016 is Spike Milligan’s Accordion: The Distortion of Time and Space in The Goon Show by Rick Cousins. Cousins's book makes a significant contribution to 20th-century theatre history especially in relation to the impact and aftermath of World War Two, theoretical physics, and theatre of the absurd. In addition, Cousins's book treats a neglected genre: theatre scholarship seldom addresses radio performance and radio comedy still less frequently.
