The Restoration theater : from tennis court to playhouse( Visual )

7 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the English Civil War, London's theaters were closed by Parliament, and many were destroyed by Cromwell. During the Restoration, new playhouses, built to stage the probing social comedies of the era, were shaped by changes in English drama, politics, and society. Dr. Thomas explains how the Parisian tennis court theaters, attended by the court in exile of Charles II, influenced the new London theaters, particularly Christopher Wren's Theatre Royal. Other Restoration design solutions, some baroque and some neoclassical, were responses to changes in British drama and society. Advanced computer graphics illustrate important theater features throughout the documentary. The program shows how Wren's work influenced Georgian playhouses and is once again inspiring modern theater design
Women in dramatic place and time : contemporary female characters on stage by Geraldine Cousin( Book )

15 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Women in Dramatic Place and Time Geraldine Cousin presents detailed analyses of a wide range of plays by British women dramatists from the last two decades. Cousin focuses on women's dramatic efforts to 'speak out' from the ideological spaces in which they have been positioned. She attends to the processes through which female characters have found their voices, and tracks their journeys into previously uninhabited territories. The plays considered include Queen Christina (Pam Gems), My Mother Said I Never Should (Charlotte Keatley), Real Estate (Louise Page), The Grace of Mary Traverse (Timberlake Wertenbaker), Leave Taking (Winsome Pinnock), The Skriker (Caryl Churchill), and After Easter (Anne Devlin). Women in Dramatic Place and Time offers exciting insights into the diversity and excellence of contemporary plays by women. It is invaluable reading for students of contemporary British theatre, literature, and women's studies, as well as anyone interested in women's writing

Explores connections between theater time, the historical moment and fictional time. Geraldine Cousin persuasively argues that a crucial characteristic of contemporary British theatre is its preoccupation with instability and danger, and traces images of catastrophe and loss in a wide range of recent plays and productions. The diversity of the texts that are examined is a major strength of the book. In addition to plays by contemporary dramatists, Cousin analyses staged adaptations of novels, and productions of plays by Euripides, Strindberg and Priestley
