Theatre by Phyllis Hartnoll
Book DescriptionActing, direction, stagecraft, theatre architecture and design, above all the whole extraordinary evolution of dramatic literature - here is a history of theatre, worldwide in scope and ranging from its ancient origins in the choral hymns sung round the altar of Dionysus to the fascinating variety of forms which it has taken in our own age. This expanded edition with a new chapter by Enoch Brater, brings this study up-to-date by surveying new trends in the theatre, including performance art, mixed-media staging, multi-cultural theatre, feminism and theatre, dance theatre and the rise of the new ethnic drama.

UK Kirkus Review » A little jewel box of intelligent comment on theatre history and the evolution of dramatic literature. Beginning in 5th-century Greece, the author traces the international development of acting, directing, stagecraft and design through the ages to the present day. First published in 1968, this pleasingly compact volume has been updated by Enoch Brater (professor of English and Theatre at Michigan University) who contributes a thoughtful chapter on contemporary theatre. A lavishly illustrated book that should enrich professionals, students and fans alike. (Kirkus UK)
