Barker, Clive and Maggie B. Gale (eds). British Theatre Between the Wars, 1918-1939. (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2000)
Essays on both mainstream and alternative British theatre, ranging from Shakespeare to thrillers, musical comedies and revue. The essays emphasize social and cultural context, arguing against the predominant view that the theatre of that time was, in the main, conservative. Authors discussed include Kennedy, Dodie Smith, Dane, O'Brien, and Christie.
