First published in 1938, The Theatre and Its Double is a collection of essays detailing Antonin Artaud's radical theories on drama and theatre, which he saw as being stifled by conservatism and lack of experimentation. Containing the famous manifestos of the `Theatre of Cruelty', the collection analyses the underlying impulses of performance, provides some suggestions on a physical-training method for actors and actresses, and features a long appreciation of the expressive values of Eastern dance drama.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This smart reissue of Victor Corti's 1970 translation is welcome, offering a new generation access to Artaud's vision of theatre as total art form...even after all these years, it still sends shivers down the spine. * TLS *
He has had an impact so profound that the course of all recent serious theatre in Western Europe and the Americas can be said to divide into two periods - before Artaud and after Artaud. -- Susan Sontag
