Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Drawing as much as possible on interviews with directors, actors, designers, and other directly involved in productions, Allen (drama, U. of Wolverhampton) explores a number of specific productions he feels are significant and highlights some of the key issues and debates about performing plays by the 19th-century Russian writer. A primary issue is the perennial complaint that nothing happens on stage during his plays. Parts of the study originated as his 1996 Ph.D. dissertation for the University of Birmingham, other parts have been published in earlier versions Annotation c.
