Review quote

'Attractive and accessible. The book should certainly be obligatory for college students reading Theatre Studies and for drama students ... A book that I found both instructive and enlightening.' - Max Stafford-Clark, Director of Out of Joint Theatre Company 'Outstanding ... As a writer and teacher she is incisive, illuminating, refreshingly honest and dissident ... The book addresses a wide range of ideas and practices in language that is accessible, articulate, energised.' - David Williams, Dartington College of Arts, UK
