Wonderfully clear and comprehensive account of a difficult subject in theatre studies. I especially enjoyed the analysis of speech acts in dramatic dialogue. Perhaps the authors were restricted by space to go deeper into their subject matter but, as a general overview with some startling insights, this is excellent.

I like the book as it's devided into different sections and chapters, which makes it really easy to look a particular subject. The book also introduces various terms and methods. But sometimes the book can be hard to understand, the language is cryptic even though the authors wanted it to be easily understandable.
If you're an absolute beginner then I would not recommend this book, but if you're already knowledable about theatre then it's a great book to return to every once in a while.

For all that I find some of this text a little navel-gazing, it is also fantastically useful for analysing a performance or a production and figuring out how it works and why - or how and why it doesn't work. It made me think about all sorts of aspects that I hadn't considered - no bad thing!
