A concise, comprehensive discussion of the artistic and practical sides of the non-commercial theatre. At the outset the point of agreement taken for granted is the conviction on the part of workers that the thin s of the old theatre must be destroyed an a new theatre be built up in its stead. Without censure against the older order, the writer confines himself to the struggle for the new theatre-the purposes of those who have started out in revolt; its problems of financial support including experiments in subsidy; the responsibility of audiences to support a theatre intelligently; early experiments showing that the machinery was not ready to carry out the new enterprises; the little theatre; laws that affect management of theatres, for instance, laws against Sunday performances and child labor; dramatic laboratories; the children's theatre: some of the pioneers of the insurgent theatre, and a closing chapter on the "Art and outlook of the insurgent Theatre."
