Explores the issues facing theatrical performances. This work describes important developments in theatre from the last century, as well as smaller scale events, from productions by Stanislavsky to the rise of Method Acting. It also shows how theatre defies rules, builds and shatters illusions and creates lasting memories for its audiences.
'I can take any empty space and call it a bare stage', so begins Peter Brook's 1968 exploration of theatre, and his own life and career in it. He describes the, as he sees it, four types of theatre - deadly, holy, rough and immediate - and recounts his groundbreaking work at the Royal Shakespeare Company.
