This work explores Polish theater within the context of the political predicament of the country, which was conquered and divided by Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union (1939-1945) and then ruled by the Soviets' imposed Communist regime (1945-1989). Braun examines theatrical events, describes productions, and portrays artists from aesthetic, cultural, and political viewpoints with a scholarly and impartial perspective. This comprehensive introduction, the first of its kind in English, includes brief overviews of the history of Poland and Polish theater, clear discussions of major theatrical developments and the facets of theatrical life in Poland, and 26 detailed profiles of the leading theater artists of the period. The book is supplemented with a bibliography of sources in English and Polish, and indexes of names and plays (with titles in both English and Polish). "To this day, this is the most valuable reference book on contemporary Polish theatre and it generates great respect fot the competence, independence, and humanity of the author."
