Focusing on the collaborative process, The Creative Spirit 6e introduces students to theatre through the plays themselves and the playwrights, directors, actors, and designers who combine their talents to create the theatre event. The Creative Spirit provides a rich context for each play included, with a discussion of the playwright's biography and sources, historical and cultural timelines, and a case study of a particular production of the play so that students can experience theatre from the inside. All of the materials for a complete course are presented together in one volume.
