`In this definitive study Leach provides answers to these questions. Writing with the needs of Theatre Studies students in mind, he sets the Company's aims and achievements in their social, political and theatrical contexts, and explores the elements which makes its success so important.' (Amateur Stage, February 2007) `...this must become the major research study, in which Robert Leach unlocks the answers to the innumerable questions that practitioners and scholars have asked for the last half century. After Mr Melvin's feeble attempt to define the role of Theatre Workshop's role in society, it is a joy that a great scholar has, in the most accessible way as is more the wont of the archaeologist, unearthed the truths that so many of us, including himself, have sought for so long. An inspiring and compulsive read.' (Amateur Stage, February 2007) `This study will give both students and academics a clearer picture of a part of British theatre which has not been forgotten entirely, but which has been left unconsidered for perhaps too long.' (David Pattie, NTQ, Vol. 24/2, May 2008)

My daughter needed this for her college course. As far as I can tell, it has been well-thumbed. The price was certainly good; and delivery prompt.
