The Oxford Illustrated History of Theatre

Edited by John Russell Brown

Oxford Illustrated Histories

Here is an authoritative and lavishly illustrated new history that celebrates the stage's greatest achievements over 4,500 years, from Sophocles and Aristophanes to George Gershwin and Harold Pinter. Written by leading authorities, the essays cover plays, actors, directors, producers, songwriters, famous playhouses, dramatic movements, and more. Accessibly and attractively arranged, the book guides readers through the full spectrum of dramatic representation as well as giving due weight to how the scene backstage evolved through the centuries and to the crucial role of the audience and critics.
