Living Theatre: History of Theatre conveys the excitement and variety of theatre throughout time, as well as the dynamic ways in which our interpretation of theatre history is informed by contemporary scholarship.

This edition opens with, “Theatre: Its Origins and Its History”, which establishes a contemporary context for the study of theatre. Biographical sketches in each chapter bring theatre history to life through the stories of the people who lived that history. Developments in theatre are examined through the debates between scholars and historians, emphasizing the living nature of this vibrant history. A full-color illustration program includes over 100 new photos and revised timelines. New sections on postmodern theatre and non-text-based theatre expand coverage of global theatre throughout the book. Living Theatre sets each period in context through an exploration of the social, political and economic conditions of the day, creating a vivid study of the developments in theatre during that time.
