About This Book

This book uses original archival material toconsider the theatrical and cultural innovationsofJoan Littlewood andher company, 'Theatre Workshop'.Littlewood had a huge impact on the way theatre was generated, rehearsed and presented during the twentieth century.

Now reissued, Joan Littlewood is the first book to combine:



  • an overview of Littlewood's career in relation to the wider social, political and cultural context
  • an exploration of Littlewood's theatrical influences, approach to actor's training, belief in the creative ensemble, attitude to text, rehearsal methods and use of improvisation
  • a detailed case study of the origins, research, creative process and thinking behind Littlewood's most famous production, Oh What a Lovely War, and an assessment of its impact
  • a series of practical exercises designed to capture and illustrate the key approaches Littlewood used in the rehearsal room.

As a first step towards critical understanding, and as an initial exploration before going on to further, primary research, Routledge Performace Practitioners offer unbeatable value for today's student.
