STR 2020 Theatre Book Prize Winner announced

Dark Star: A Biography of Vivien Leigh by Alan Strachan has been awarded the Society for Theatre Research Theatre Book Prize (for books published in 2019).

The announcement was made remotely in lieu of the usual prize-giving ceremony at the Prince of Wales Theatre.

Theatre Book Prize Judge Panellist Professor Edith Hall, writes:

‘It has been a joy and a privilege to read all the books submitted, and being prompted to remember heady days and evenings in live theatres has been a boon during a period of national lockdown where we have been so starved of live entertainment of any kind whatsoever.’
