Community Theatre: Global Perspectives / Edition 1

This is a unique record of the similarities and differences which exist within the vital artform of community theater throughout the world.

I know of no other book like it and van Erven is certainly the right person for the job, given his background in political and popular theatre and his geographically extensive research (Mariellen Sandford, NYU)

The tie-in with video broadcast will allow this material to be really useful for educational purposes (Carol Fisher Sorgenfrei, UCLA)

A book along these lines is certainly one that would be welcomed by many professional academic practitioners throughout the world (Baz Kershaw, University of Bristol)
