Howard Loxton is a writer, editor and critic and a Life Member of the Society He has been responsible for the administration of the STR Theatre Book Prize since 2000 and chairs the panel of judges. He worked in the theatre as actor and stage manager in repertory and the West End before occasional journalism led to a switch into publishing as an editor with Paul Hamlyn, William Collins, Elsevier International and as Editorial Director of Jonathan Cape’s Jackdaw imprint. He is also the author of numerous books, mainly on history, natural history and theatre. He regularly reviews London theatre both in print and on line and is a member of the Critics’ Circle. He has served on the Committee for some years. Never having held an academic post, though with an MA in Modern Drama, he is a voice for those members outside academia.
Currently concentrating on promenade performance and its techniques. I would be interested in: Information about forthcoming performances, reports of performances from both audience and performers and critical coverage, photographs, designs, prompt scripts, topography and movement plots.
