This is where I list the books and websites I've looked at to write whatever I have on theatre.
I'll be honest about my opinion about the sources, but don't take a lack of a review as meaning anything.
It might just mean that I read the book long ago and have only glanced back at a few pages recently, so
can't say anything meaningful. Additionally, I have read sections on theatre in a number of books
covered elsewhere, particularly under literature and painting; and clearly much of this derives
from actually reading plays and even seeing one or two. There will be a link to any websites
referenced, but I'll offer book
links to either Amazon so that you can buy the book if you so wish, or to a review page here,
or both if possible. If there is no Amazon link, I couldn't find it on Amazon when I put the
entry in here - that doesn't mean it's unavailable now. (And no special endorsement of Amazon
is implied by this.)
