Overview

Life Themes is a drama anthology of 12 plays that can be bundled with the Theatre in Your Life or any Cengage introduction to theatre textbook. Edited by authors Robert Barton and Annie McGregor, this anthology provides complete scripts for the 12 plays that are discussed in Theatre in Your Life's "Dramatic Interlude" sections. The Anthology is set up to mirror the Interludes with 6 Themes (2 plays in each), "Love," "War," "Generations," "Rebellion," "Dreams," and "Values." Each theme includes an introductory paragraph on the topic and why dramatists are drawn to writing about it. For each play, the editors have provided historical context and a brief biography about the playwright.

Meet the Author

Robert Barton is a professor emeritus in acting at the University of Oregon and has also taught for the American Heritage Association in London. He has acted in most of the plays of Shakespeare and directed half of them. He is a prolific author, whose works include the books ACTING: ONSTAGE AND OFF (soon to be issued in its seventh edition); STYLE FOR ACTORS and VOICE: ONSTAGE AND OFF (with Rocco Dal Vera), both recently published in updated editions; and the new text ACTING REFRAMES: USING NLP TO MAKE BETTER DECISIONS IN AND OUT OF THE THEATRE. He most recently served as editor and adaptor of the 21st Century edition of the classic text THE CRAFT OF COMEDY. Robert is recipient of the Theatre Association's Best Book Award and has been honored as Outstanding Acting Coach by the American College Theatre Festival. He has numerous articles in scholarly journals, and his regular column, "Many Right Ways," appears in each edition of Voice & Speech Review.

Annie McGregor teaches script analysis and history/literature/criticism at The Pennsylvania State University School of Theatre, where she is currently Head of the BA Theatre program. She has received the Atherton Award for Teaching Excellence and the College of Arts and Architecture Award for Teaching Excellence. She is a sometime actor, with her most recent and most favorite role being Jean in "After Mrs. Rochester," at the University of Oregon in its West Coast premiere. She is a regular dramaturg; her most recent projects include "Mother Courage and Her Children" and "Pentecost." She is increasingly intrigued by the world of online teaching, after the successful launch and continued success of her Art of the Theatre web course.
