National Theatres in Context
Distributed for University of Wales Press
The book introduces and investigates the drive to create a national theatre as an inherent aspect of the cultural, social and political life of modern Wales. Within the challenging background of a new European community, the author asks the question "What is a national theatre?" and more importantly perhaps "What is its relevance to Wales?"
The main focus of the book, however, is on ascertaining how, in twenty-first-century Wales, a national theatre participates in the creation of the modern European Welsh man or woman.
