Captive Audiences/Captive Performers: Music and Theatre as Strategies for Survival on the Thailand-Burma Railway 1942-1945

This publication of Chapter 9 and 10 is a trial for the forthcoming presentation of the complete work online. Once the formatting is completed for the online presentation, additional chapters will be posted as they become available. We hope to have the complete work published online by 2013. The book tells the story of how music and theatre helped the 61,000 POWs who were sent to these camps survive their ordeal. It is a story that is not well-known to history and it is now being recovered. It is a story about how music and theatre and the other arts are absolutely essential to a society's life. Sears A.
