Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Hedgerow Theatre was created by Jasper Deeter in 1923 in a rural Pennsylvania community devoted to the Arts and Crafts movement. Deeter, who had achieved some success in Eugene O'Neill's The Emperor Jones, abandoned the commercial stage and assembled a company dedicated to true repertory and to theater as a 'way of life.' It was an audacious experiment, but over the next thirty years Hedgerow prospered and became America's most successful repertory company. While it is popularly known for some of its famous alumnae, including Ann Harding and Richard Basehart, Hedgerow's genuine legacy is a living library of over 200 productions created by Deeter's idealistic, but determined, pursuit of "truth and beauty" in the theatre.

Synopsis:

Using the famed Hedgerow Theatre as an example, Witham illustrates how theatres can be self-sufficient and experimental (outside of the establishment.)
