A Dramatic Appearance - New Zealand theatre 1920-1970
- Book - hardcover - history
‘New Zealand theatre’ is a concept easily recognised in the 1970s. For New Zealand playwrights though, the fifty years before 1970 were an uphill struggle, often in the face of audiences who thought real plays came from abroad.
How did it happen? Who were the personalities? What were the turning points…the failures…the successes? This fascinating story, from Alan Mulgan’s significant Three Plays of New Zealand to the spectacular success of Roger Hall’s Glide Time, is told here for the first time. Source: liner note.
