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. Covering the period before 1932, when theatre was seen as a crucial medium with the power to shape people’s beliefs and behaviour, it explores the portrayal of a broad range of topics including the First World War, race and inter-racial relationships, contemporary and historical international conflicts, horror, sexual freedom and morality, class, the monarchy, and religion.
