LIFE THEMES is a drama anthology of 12 plays that is available to complement THEATRE IN YOUR LIFE or any Cengage introduction to theatre textbook. Edited by Robert Barton and Annie McGregor, this anthology provides complete scripts for the 12 plays that are discussed in THEATRE IN YOUR LIFE's "Dramatic Interlude" sections. The anthology mirrors the Interludes with six themes: love, war, generations, rebellion, dreams, and values. Each theme includes an introductory paragraph on the topic and why dramatists are drawn to writing about it. For each play, the editors have provided historical context, a brief biography about the playwright, and suggestions for further study.

About the Author:

Robert Barton is Professor Emeritus of Acting at the University of Oregon. He has directed more than half of Shakespeare's plays and performed in most of them, including playing the title role in a PBS production of HAMLET. A prolific author, Dr. Barton has published numerous scholarly articles on acting and seven books, including VOICE: ONSTAGE AND OFF (with Rocco Dal Vera), THEATRE IN YOUR LIFE and LIFE THEMES (both with Annie McGregor), and ACTING REFRAMES. His STYLE FOR ACTORS received the Theatre Association's Best Book Award. In addition, he served as editor and adaptor of the newly revised edition of the classic text THE CRAFT OF COMEDY. The American College Theatre Festival honored Dr. Barton as Outstanding Acting Coach. He received his Ph.D. from Bowling Green State University.

Review:

"The introductions for each theme are interesting and intelligently rendered... very readable for an undergraduate student. I do believe they enhance the learning experience and are written in such a way to enlarge class discussion.
