This book presents a collection of cutting-edge historical and cultural essays in the field of women, theatre and performance. The chapters explore women's networks of professional practice in the theatre and performance industries between 1900 and 1950, with a focus on women's sense and experience of professional agency in an industry largely controlled by men. The book is divided into two sections: 'Female theatre workers in the social and theatrical realm' looks at the relationship between women's work - on and off stage - and autobiography, activism, technique, touring, education and the law. 'Women and popular performance' focuses on the careers of individual artists, once household names, including Lily Brayton, Ellen Terry, radio star Mabel Constanduros and Oscar-winning film star Margaret Rutherford.
