About this book

This book explores an under-researched body of work from the early decades of the twentieth century, connecting plays, performances and practitioners together in dynamic dialogues. Moving across national, generational and social borders, the book reads experiments in Britain during this period alongside theatrical innovations overseas.

About the authors

CLAIRE WARDEN joined the University of Lincoln, UK, as a Lecturer in Drama in 2010 after completing her postdoctoral study at the University of Edinburgh, UK.

Reviews
