Theatre Production Studies

Series Editor: John Russell Brown
'(This series) ... will be welcomed by students and teachers alike.' - New Theatre Quarterly

Designed to span Western theatre from the Greeks to the present day, each book in this path-breaking series explores a period or a genre, drawing together aspects of production from staging, wardrobe, and acting styles, to the management of a theatre, its artistic team, and technical crew. Each volume focuses on several texts of exceptional achievement, and is well illustrated with contemporary material.

The Theatres of Molière

plays on the contemporary stage.
