Who were the giants of the twentieth-century stage, and exactly how did they influence modern theatre?

Robert Leach's Makers of Modern Theatre is the first detailed introduction to the work of the key theatre-makers who shaped the drama of the last century: Konstantin Stanislavsky, Vsevolod Meyerhold, Bertolt Brecht and Antonin Artaud.

Leach focuses on the major issues which relate to their dominance of theatre history:

*What was significant in their life and times?
*What is their main legacy?
*What were their dramatic philosophies and practices?
*How have their ideas been adapted since their deaths?
*What are the current critical perspectives on their work?

Never before has so much essential information on the making of twentieth-century theatre been compiled in one brilliantly concise, beautifully illustrated book. This is a genuinely insightful volume by one of the foremost theatre historians of our age.
