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 to the 1990s. Highly readable, incisive and deeply imbued with a personal viewpoint that stresses the primacy of live performance, Professor Wickham''s 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.
