Description: A comprehensive guide to world drama from Ancient Greece to the present day (in this instance the mid-1970s). As the author explains in the Introduction, the book concentrates mainly, but not exclusively, on the straight theatre, and is divided into a number of sections carefully chosen to help the playgoer and student alike.
Contents include entries for almost 400 playwrights; an A-Z of theatrical terms; descriptions of theatre architecture through the ages; plus much, much more.

Illustrated throughout with superb full-colour and b&w photographs, drawings, and reproductions – many of which are full-page.

Apart from some light tanning on the flaps, the jacket is in excellent condition. The spine has been bumped and a dedication cut out from the fep, otherwise the book is almost as new.

An indispensable guide for the theatre enthusiast.

Measures 27 cm × 20 cm (10.8″ × 8″). 4to. 207 pp.

Price: £16.00
