"This book presents perspectives from the era's major playwrights, directors, scholars and philosophers." Times Higher Education Supplement "At once comprehensive and original, this collection assembles for the first time an impressive body of theory drawn from a wide range of disciplines and traditions. This will be an indispensable sourcebook for anyone who enjoys not only going to the theatre, but also thinking about it afterwards." Martin Puchner, Columbia University "An eclectic anthology of writings on theatre, many made accessible here for the first time. The often bracing juxtaposition of viewpoints from practitioners, playwrights, scholars, and theoreticians reminds us how rich the collective discourse of theatre has been since the beginning of the twentieth century. Bridging the divides that have so often characterized this field, Theatre in Theory offers a resounding testament to theatre's urgency in the modern world." Stanton B. Garner, Jr., University of Tennessee
