'Rising to the promise that the title holds out, this excellent book will be of value to all scholars with an interest in contemporary performance practices. It gives deep and well-informed insight into not only the creation and presentation of solo performance work but the economic realities within which it is embedded [.]Greer's palette is broad and wide-ranging, though this not in any way at the expense of detail - far from it. This brilliant addition to scholarly considerations of contemporary theatre practices is deeply rooted in an insider's understanding of the logistics, economics, and sheer hard work that underpins solo performance.'
Alison Jeffers, New Theatre Quarterly, Vol. 35, No. 2 (May 2019)
