About the book
In this masterly survey, Glynne Wickham outlines the development of drama throughout the world over the last 3,000 years, from its origins in primitive dance rituals all the way to the very end of the twentieth century. Highly readable, incisive and deeply imbued with a personal viewpoint that stresses the primacy of live performance, Wickham's erudite work is based on a lifetime's practical experience as a teacher, researcher and professional director. A History of the Theatre is the ideal introduction to the subject for all lovers of the theatre, and an authoritative textbook for students.
