The Art of the Dramatist - An Anthology of Writings on the Theatre $21.99

J B Priestley

Published by Oberon

In these passionate and witty essays on the theatre, J B Priestley distils his experience as a playwright, producer, director and just once actor

Relishing the past, analysing the present, and predicting the future, he tells his own 'story of the theatre'

This new Collection is part defence of theatre, part incisive criticism, and in the renowned Old Vic lecture The Art of the Dramatist, part instructive guide for would-be playwrights
