Abstract:

"Acts of crime and criminal minds have always fascinated authors. From 1900 to 1925, stages worldwide were full of plays in which transgression and lawbreaking were the common denominators. Blood on the Stage: Milestone Plays of Crime, Mystery, and Detection examines the key representations of transgression drama: eighty plays written and produced between 1900 and 1925 that had at least one public performance in the English language, with an emphasis on New York and London productions." "The entries are arranged chronologically, each containing a plot summary (often including significant dialogue), production and performance data, and opinions by critics and scholars. The book includes standards of the genre, highlighting representative works by prolific playwrights of the genre - works of enduring importance, singular innovation, or outstanding success."--Jacket.
