Grange covers productions, theories, innovations, and plays from ancient Greece to the Spanish Golden Age. It does not read like a scholarly tome as its chapters allow the uninitiated reader access to well-researched and often humorous material. Descriptions of films augment discussions of theatre, helping readers better analyze theatre performance.
