Abstract:

"Now re-issued, this book uses original archival material to consider Joan Littlewood and her company, 'Theatre Workshop'. Littlewood was a theatrical and cultural innovator whose contributions to theatre made a huge impact on the way theatre was generated, rehearsed and presented during the twentieth century. This is the first book to combine:an overview of Littlewood's career in relation to the wider social, political and cultural contextan exploration of Littlewood's theatrical influences, approach to actor's training, belief in the creative ensemble, attitude to text, rehearsal methods and use of improvisationa detailed case study of the origins, research, creative process and thinking behind Littlewood's most famous production, Oh What a Lovely War, and an assessment of its impacta series of practical exercises designed to capture and illustrate the key approaches Littlewood used in the rehearsal room. As a first step towards critical understanding, and as an initial exploration before going on to further, primary research, Joan Littlewood is unbeatable value for today's student."--Provided by publisher.
