Theatre Writings by Kenneth Tynan

Book Description

Kenneth Tynan was the 20th century's most influential theatre critic. Famous above all for championing the Angry Young Men at the Royal Court and for heralding Brecht, Beckett and Pinter, his writing was itself a 'high-definition performance' - stylish, discerning and scintillatingly witty.

Theatre Writings by Kenneth Tynan Theatre Writings, Hardback (January 2007)

This volume brings together the best of Tynan's theatre writing drawn from his twelve years as a theatre critic (1951-63).
