Exposed by the mask : form and language in drama by Peter Hall ( Book )
15 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Peter Hall delivered these explorations of form and language in drama as the Clark Lectures for Trinity College, Cambridge in January 2000. In four main parts they reveal a lifetime's discoveries about classical theatre, Shakespeare, opera and modern drama." "The central argument is that form and structured language paradoxically give freedom to power of thought and feeling, much like the masks which enabled actors in early Greek drama to express extreme emotion. The mask may take many forms - the precise language of Beckett and Pinter, the classical form of Mozart's operas, or Shakespeare's verse."--BOOK JACKET

The necessary theatre by Peter Hall ( Book )
2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This short polemic represents Peter Hall's distillation of his current thinking about the state of the theatre. In it he pursues two linked arguments. He argues that theatre throughout the ages has always required financial assistance, and that without subsidy theatre will stagnate. Then he draws directly on his own experiences running the Royal Shakespeare Company, the National Theatre and his repertory company at the Old Vic. He argues that the best theatre can only be made with a permanent company of actors and technicians situated in their own building." "Just before publication, Peter Hall left Britain to run a Shakespeare season in Los Angeles. The Necessary Theatre is a parting shot, describing his disenchantment with New Labour's attitude to the arts."--BOOK JACKET
