The Censorship of British Drama 1900-1968, Volume 3
by Steve Nicholson
Steve Nicholson’s important and warmly reviewed four-part analysis of British theatre censorship from 1900 to 1968 is based on previously unpublished material in the Lord Chamberlain’s Correspondence Archives in the British Library and the Royal Archives at Windsor Castle.
Volume Three covers the 1950s, focusing on plays we know, plays we have forgotten, and plays which were silenced for ever, demonstrating the extent to which censorship shaped the theatre voices of this decade.
The new four-volume paperback edition, with contextualising timeline and biographies, is published in association with the University of Exeter Press, and is the Society’s annual publication for the membership year 2019/20. STR Members will receive a complete set of four volumes as part of their subscription package.
