9780748625925: American Theatre: History, Context, Form (BAAS Paperbacks)

This book provides a brief yet informative evaluation of the variety and complexity of theatrical ventures in the United States. It embraces all epochs of theatre history, from pre-colonial Native American performance rituals and the endeavours of early colonisers in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, to the end of the twentieth century, situating American theatre as a lively, dynamic and diverse arena.Theresa Saxon examines the implications of political manoeuvrings, economics - both state funded and commercial - race and gender, and material factors such as technology, riot and fire as major forces determining the structure of America's playhouses and productions.She investigates critical understandings of the term 'theatre,' and assesses ways in which the various values of commerce, entertainment, education and dramatic production have informed the definition of theatre throughout America's history.

About the Author:


Theresa Saxon is Senior Lecturer at the University of Central Lancashire.

Review:


'The book certainly is multifunctional as an ideal source of criticism of American drama and theatre, a superb guidebook for central events in American theatre and drama history, and a review of forgotten facts and figures in that narrative.'

- Gabriella Varró, University of Debrecen, Hungarian Journal of English and American Studies

This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Argues for the recognition of American theatre history as long, rich, diverse and critically compelling. Embracing all epochs of theatre history, from pre-colonial Native American performance rituals and the endeavours of early colonisers in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, to the end of the twentieth century, Theresa Saxon situates American theatre as a lively, dynamic and diverse arena. She considers the implications of political manoeuvrings, economics - state-funding and commercial enterprises - race and gender, as well as material factors such as technology, riot and fire, as major forces in determining the structure of America s playhouses and productions. She goes on to investigate critical understandings of the term theatre, and assesses ways in which the various values of commerce, entertainment, education and dramatic production have informed the definition of theatre throughout America s history.
