This publication is the first comprehensive account in English of the history of the Freie Volksb^D"hne, founded in Berlin in 1890 through the interaction of Social Democracy and Theatrical Naturalism. Cecil Davies details the nationwide growth of the Volksb^D"hne Movement during the 1920s through the 1990s - including Germany's stormy history up to World War I, the problems associated with building the Volksb├╝hne's own theatre, and the reunification of Germany. Weight is given to the contributions of major figures in the movement such as Bruno Wille, Siegfried Nestriepke, and Erwin Piscator.

Industry Reviews

"In this expansion and update of his Theatre for the People: The Story of the Volksbuhne (1977), Davies moves his focus from Berlin to Germany, giving a clear and detailed picture of the Volksbuhne Movement from the period before 1890....Complimenting the narrative are interesting photographs of the people involved and of the theaters and famous productions." -Y. Shafer, St. John's University, New York of CHOICE "The first comprehensive account in English....Provides a fuller treatment of the subject....Enhanced with sections of informative notes and principal sources, appendices, an index of names and a general index, the work is a goldmine of information." -International Theatre Institute newsletter, Spring 2001
