In this masterly survey, Glynne Wickham outlines the development of drama throughout the world over the last 3,000 years, from its origins in primitive dance rituals all the way to the very end of the twentieth century. Highly readable, incisive and deeply imbued with a personal viewpoint that stresses the primacy of live performance, Wickham's erudite work is based on a lifetime's practical experience as a teacher, researcher and professional director.
