Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dramaturgy: A Revolution in Theatre is the first substantial history of the origins of dramaturgs and literary managers - people who act as advisers and play-doctors at todays theatres. Mary Luckhurst examines the major theorists and practitioners, arguing that Brecht, Granville Barker and Tynan have central places in this history. Contentious figures, often accused of sinister intent, the numbers of dramaturgs have multiplied considerably in the last few decades. This study investigates the political and cultural agendas behind this revolution, and whether dramaturgs are mentors or censors.
