This special issue on amateur theatre and performance is accompanied by a set of online features, free to access, at www.contemporarytheatrereview.org, that give further insight into research methods on this subject. These include a collection of images and accompanying stories that came out of ‘Evocative Objects’ workshops held with amateur theatre-makers throughout the UK; a conversation between Nadine Holdsworth and eighty-one-year-old Arthur Aldrich, who has worked across professional and amateur contexts; an annotated slide show documenting amateur theatre in the Royal Navy compiled by Sarah Penny and Nadine Holdsworth; and Molly Flynn’s reflections on the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Open Stages Initiative.
