Description

Between the two world wars, amateur theatre thrived across the UK, from Newcastle to Norwich, from Bolton to Birmingham and Bangor, championed by the likes of George Bernard Shaw, Sybil Thorndike, and J B Priestley. Often born out of a particular political cause or predicament, many of these theatres and companies continue to evolve, survive and even prosper today. In his newest book, theatre critic Michael Coveney traces the development of amateur theatre from the medieval guilds to the modern theatre of Ayckbourn and Pinter, with a few mishaps and missed cues along the way.
