Summary Beginning with the triple impulses of Naturalism, symbolism and the grotesque, this guide concentrates on the most famous directors of this century - Stanislavski, Reinhardt, Graig, Meyerhold, Piscator, Brecht, Artuaud and Grotowski. More practical than theoretical, the author delineates how each director changed the tradition that came before him.
