How does the theatre examine the structures leading to violence and war and explore their transformation of societies? Springing from the discussion about New Wars in the age of globalisation, this study demonstrates how these New Wars bring forth new plays about war. These plays examine the state of war in the late twentieth and early twenty-first century by introducing the traits of the New Wars and the state of exception as crucial frames of reference. Exposing the homo sacer as one of the remaining taboos of our stages and the political taboo of our society, they attempt to find the truth about war in testimonies that nurse western societys vicarious and actual traumas, and reveal the war palimpsest on stage by demonstrating how the New Wars are underwritten by the Thirty-Years War and ancient warfare.

Looking at well-known plays such as Sarah Kanes Blasted, Caryl Churchills Far Away and Gregory Burkes Black Watch, Boll also discusses works such as Zinnie Harriss war trilogy Midwinter, Solstice and Fall, David Greigs Dunsinane and Elfriede Jelineks Bambiland.
