Overview

Combining basic composition and critical inquiry into the discipline of theatre, WRITING ABOUT THEATRE AND DRAMA meets the fundamental needs of beginning theatre students to learn the unique and varied forms of theatre and drama in their role in our cultural heritage. Beginning with a discussion of the theatrical review, the text covers the forms of essays used in writing about theatre, research, matters of style, structure, and vocabulary.
