Collapse All Sections

A Cultural History of Theatre in the Modern Age provides a comprehensive and interdisciplinary overview of the cultural history of theatre from 1920 to 2000. Drawing together contributions from leading scholars, this volume examines the various possibilities of meaning of the term ‘modern’ and the identity of modernist theatre. Each chapter takes a different theme as its focus, including institutional frameworks; social functions; sexuality and gender; the environment of theatre; circulation; interpretations; communities of production; repertoire and genres; technologies of performance, and knowledge transmission.
