Product description

Review

'The story of the National Theatre is as packed with drama as anything it has staged...Covering 50 years during which the National has staged 800 or so shows, it can t help but prompt vivid memories in theatre-going reader.' --Sunday Times

'This weighty tome is the definitive history, synthesising many of the previous works, incorporating extensive new interview material with privileged access to directors' files, administrative records, board papers and the restricted holdings in the NT archive... It's all here, summarised better than anywhere else…. this is a story with guts, great actors, laughter, disaster, and other properties that most books don't possess….. It's the story of a campaign, a process, a fulfilment; of a triumph of the national character despite itself, of a celebration and a realisation of what we, as a nation, simply do better, probably thanks to Shakespeare, than anyone else: the theatre.' --Michael Coveney, Independent

'[A] mighty tome... Rosenthal documents with precision and style' --Herald Scotland
