This discussion provides primary research on the activities of popular dramatists and drama groups in Scotland who played an important role in the late blossoming of a Scottish national drama. The text covers Joe Corrie's Fife Miner Players, Glasgow Unity Theatre and Joan Littlewood's Theatre Workshop. These companies produced a wide range of original works on contemporary issues (the General Strike of 1926, unemployment in the hungry 30s, Glasgow's post-war housing shortage) as well as religious, racial and gender issues. They adopted a variety of styles, from agit-prop to social realism, and made creative use of popular forms of entertainment, from the Burns Supper to the village concert. The book provides a comparison with the work of other international popular drama movements.
