Summary The Cambridge Guide to Theatre offers a wealth of information on the history and present practice of theatre in all parts of the world. Written by a team of international experts, it clearly depicts the dynamic interation of performance traditions from all cultures in present-day theatre. While saluting the history and traditions of 'high' art in the theatre, the Guide also celebrates the importance of 'low' art; the energy and animation that has infused popular theatre and popular entertainment for thousands of years. The Guide, already well established as an authoritative source of information on all major playwrights and their works, theatre traditions, theories, practitioners and events, has been rigorously updated for this new edition. This is an essential reference work for students and teachers of theatre, practitioners and the general theatregoer.
