About the Authors
  • Themes in Drama is a journal which brings together articles and review about the dramatic and theatrical activity of a wide range of cultures and periods. The articles offer original contributions to their own specialised fields, but are presented in such a way that their significance may be readily appreciated by non-specialists. The review section is especially important since reviewers have more than usual scope to give critical accounts of drama in performance and to discuss the most significant contributions to dramatic scholarship and criticism.
