Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“…because many people find it hard to read plays [Unwin] had written this book to help them. And it works surprisingly well… A useful book, then, from which I learned a lot”—The Stage

“an overview of contemporary theatrical thinking, distilling into a single volume a lifetime of [Unwin’s] own wisdom.. Aspiring directors, actors and quite possibly critics will certainly derive much from The Well Read Play... essential reading”-British Theatre Guide
