The Censorship of British Drama 1900-1968 Volume 1

New paperback, with contextualising timeline and biographies, published in association with the Society for Theatre Research

Published in paperback for the first time, this first volume in Steve Nicholson’s important four-part analysis of British theatre censorship from 1900 to 1968 is based on previously undocumented material in the Lord Chamberlain's Correspondence Archives.
