The History of Theatre is a bold undertaking that covers Western theatre from ancient Greece to the present day. It traces the development of dramatic art through the miracle plays, the great Shakespearean period, Molière and Racine in France, Goethe in Germany, through the nineteenth century, and the main movements of the twentieth century.
Illustrated by numerous examples of differing styles with historical recordings and excerpts from nearly fifty plays, The History of Theatre is a fascinating journey into the world of performing arts.
