WORLD THEATRE: An Illustrated History

Both playwright (Leda and the Swan) and critic (for The Observer and The Spectator), Gascoigne writes a sturdy and readable history which uses its gallery of 320 pictures to illustrate changing techniques and situations, and show, generally, ""what a playgoer of the time would have seen"" both on stage, in the audience, and behind the scenes. From primitive to present drama. A book that will interest the informed as well as the unintiated.
