BOOK OF THE WEEK 📚- ‘The Routledge Drama Anthology Modernism to Contemporary Performance’

Written By Maggie B. Gale, John F. Deeney. The Routledge Drama Anthology is an original compilation of works from key movements in the history of the modern theatre, from the late nineteenth to the early twenty-first century. This expanded new edition now features twenty new plays and essays.

The anthology spans:

  • Naturalism and Symbolism

  • The Historical Avant-Garde

  • Political Theatres

  • Late Modernism

  • Contemporary Theatre and Performance

Each of the book’s five sections comprises a selection of plays and performance texts that define the period, reproduced in full and accompanied by key theoretical writings from performers, playwrights and critics that inform and contextualize their reading. Substantial introductions from experts in the field also provide these sections with an overview of the works and their significance.

Each week we will be showing you different literature on a diverse range of subjects that influence us as playwrights and theatre makers.
