The Censorship of British Drama 1900-1968, Volume 4
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important and warmly reviewed four-part analysis of British theatre censorship from 1900 to 1968 is based on previously unpublished material in the Lord Chamberlain’s Correspondence Archives in the British Library and the Royal Archives at Windsor Castle.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 Four (winner of the 2016 STR Theatre Book Prize) covers the 1960s, a significant decade in social and political spheres in Britain, especially in the theatre. As certainties shifted and social divisions widened, a new generation of theatre-makers arrived, ready to sweep away yesterday’s conventions and challenge the establishment.
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.
