Beschreibung
David Wiles considers theatrical activity "happening" in churches, streets, pubs and galleries, as well as in buildings explicitly designed to be "theaters," in this historical account. Surveying performance space usage within the traditions of Western Europe, Wiles traces a diverse set of continuities, from Greece and Rome to the present, including many areas not included in standard accounts of theater history.
