Starting in 1900, this book introduces the features that characterize modern and current British theatre. Topics covered include experimental performances under motorways, plays by Stoppard and Ayckbourn, amateur theatre and virtual spaces, the emergence of the director, the changing role of writers and political and community shows. The book is clearly divided into four sections: where it happens, who does it, what they make, and why they do it. It discusses theatre buildings and theatre that refuses buildings; company organization, ensembles and collectives; and different sorts of acting.
