This book is great for all directors!

If you are a director, READ THIS BOOK! It's based in theory but Whitmore transforms the semiotics into practical application in very clear ways. I'm so glad I bought it.

Useful compendium to the study of contempoary theatre.

Whitmore's guide is an excellent tool for any theorist of theatre studies and a brilliant introduction for the under-graduate. Unlike other 'essential' reading upon ones book list, this really is worth your money. It is a very useful introduction to the use of semiotics in theatre, and is presented in a simple manner that isn't patronising: nor does it make it any the less suitable for higher academic purposes. It allows one to understand some theory of post-modern theatre, using examples from contempoary practioners, while gradually (through each new chapter) building upon the intricate workings of theatre's most pioneering medium. Whitmore should be congratulated on one of the finest reference books I have come across to date.
