Abstract EN

The present study aims at investigating Verbatim Theatre as a Contemporary form of Western drama, focusing on David Hare's (1947) Permanent Way (2003).

In this play, Hare mixes politics and art to criticize the Labour Government's performance concerning Privitization of Ralitrack system in Britain in 1991.

In sequence of this decision, a series of train crashes between the years 1997-2002.

Life in the last decade of the Twentieth century on through the Twenty-First century is typically described as the life of technology and media due to the immense influences on human thinking strategies, life styles, and fashion modes.

Henceforth; the excessiveness and exploitation of technology in every field of life becomes an urgent necessity.

Since drama is a reflection of life, it nonetheless echoes the changes of its time, and therefore becomes an inevitable demand for the employment of technology in dramatic productions.

Verbatim theatre is one of theatrical trends that has ebbed recently depending upon technological progresses.
