The World of Theatre: An Account of the Theatre Seasons 1996-97, 1997-98 and 1998-99
Taylor & Francis, 2000 - Performing Arts - 314 pages
Published to coincide with the Congress of the International Theatre Institute, (the UNESCO body that looks after the interests of the world theatre community), this book offers an account of recent theatre activity across six continents. The year 2000 edition covers the three seasons from the 1996-7 to 1998-99. The content of the book is as varied as the theatre scenes it describes, from magisterial round-ups by leading critics in Europe (Peter Hepple of The Stage) and North America (Jim O'Quinn of American Theatre) to what are sometimes literally reports from the battlefield in war-torn countries such as Iran or Sierra Leone.
