Combining authoritative writing with superb illustration, The Cambridge Illustrated History of British Theatre is a fascinating exploration of the development of the live performing arts in Britain from the earliest times to the present day. Taking a broad view of theater, the book covers everything from the minor and illegitimate to the mainstream and official --whether the mystery plays of the Middle Ages or the real time drama of Coronation Street, the courtly theater of Shakespeare or the contemporary fringe. The book is aimed at both students and general readers. Simon Trussler is a retired drama professor at the University of London and the editor of New Theatre Quarterly.
