Book Prize Shortlist Announced!

The STR’s 2020 Theatre Book Prize, for books published in 2019, now has a shortlist.

The longlist has been pared down to a wide-ranging selection: the shortlist features a biography of Vivien Leigh, insightful examinations of playwriting and being an artistic director, expansive histories of British theatre in the 18th century and through the ages, plus the untold story of one of Drury Lane’s most enterprising (and financially-doomed) managers.

The winner will be announced here on June 18th – put the date in your diaries! Meanwhile, all details, with links to the books on their publishers’ websites, may be found on the Theatre Book Prize Page
