About this book

Introduction

Arthur Wing Pinero and Henry Arthur Jones established an English drama that was respected by other countries. They dedicated themselves to the reclamation of English drama from the doldrums of the late 18th century. Together they raised standards in the theatre of acting and production, explored important social and moral issues, and fought a lifelong battle with the censor, changing standard views of what was acceptable in the theatre. Dr Griffin explores their lives and work in this important volume.
