Download Dramaturgy: A Revolution in Theatre by Mary Luckhurst PDF

By Mary Luckhurst

Within the first exhaustive heritage of the origins of dramaturgs and literary managers--people who act as advisers and play-doctors at state-of-the-art theatres, Mary Luckhurst examines the main theorists and practitioners, arguing that Brecht, Granville Barker and Tynan have important roles during this heritage. Contentious figures, usually accused of sinister reason, the numbers of dramaturgs have improved significantly within the final many years. This research inquires as to the political and cultural agendas in the back of this revolution, and even if dramaturgs are mentors or censors.
