New paperback, with contextualising timeline and biographies, published in association with the Society for Theatre Research
Published in paperback for the first time, this is the third part of Steve Nicholson’s warmly reviewed four-volume analysis of British theatre censorship from 1900 to 1968, based on previously undocumented material in the Lord Chamberlain’s Correspondence Archives. It covers the 1950s, focusing on plays we know, plays we have forgotten, and plays which were silenced for ever, demonstrating the extent to which censorship shaped the theatre voices of this decade.
