Product description

Review

"This informative study of the man and artist fills a void in the scholarship on post-WW II British fringe theater. Elsam's book is an enjoyable read, filled with interesting anecdotes and a clear sense of Joseph's importance (as bolstered by interviews with Ayckbourn, Trevor Griffiths, and Ben Kingsley). The book includes a useful time line of Joseph's life, a few photos from Joseph productions, and a copious bibliography. Summing Up: Recommended. Undergraduates, graduate students, researchers/faculty, and professionals/practitioners." - J. Fisher, University of North Carolina at Greensboro, "CHOICE

Elsam has been at pains to explore even indirect traces of Joseph s impact on theatre and theatrical practitioners and to demonstrate the effects of his work into the present century. Elsam provides substantial information, much of it drawn from letters, about Joseph s efforts to find support for his experimental work and about his quarrels with established theater critics such as W.A. Darlington and Kenneth Tynan. "Verna A. Foster, Loyola University Chicago, USA, Text & Presentation"

In this well-researched study, the author strives to offer a fresh and deep reappraisal of Joseph s work, and a thorough re-examination of his discoveries (x) which he does. [Elsam s] book makes a powerful case as to the centrality of Stephen Joseph in British theatrical history and practice. - "Text & Presentation""

About the Author

Dr. Paul Elsam trained as an actor at the former Manchester Polytechnic School of Theatre, and has worked widely as a performer in theatre, radio, film and television, including in BAFTA and Olivier-nominated productions on stage and screen. He has directed professional actors and students in both the UK and the USA, often working 'in the round'. He has held teaching posts at the universities of Hull and Teesside, and at the Academy of Live and Recorded Arts. He maintains a strong research interest in post-war theatre historiography, and in the praxis of actor training.
