Combining the popular with the commercial, the book includes accounts of the craze for thriller and detective plays and musical comedy and revue, alongside analyses of historical pageantry and the development of politicized productions of Shakespeare. It initiates a long overdue reassessment of mid-twentieth century British theater cultures.

The book will appeal to advanced undergraduates and postgraduates as well as scholars interested in twentieth-century British theater.Contents:Theatre and society: the Edwardian legacy, the First World War and the inter-war years / Clive BarkerBody parts: the success of the thriller in the inter-war years / John StokesWhen men were men and women were women / John DeeneyGirl crazy: musicals and revue between the wars / James Ross MooreErrant nymphs: women and the inter-war theatre / Maggie B.
