A distillation of Sir Peter Hall's current thinking on the state of theatre in which he argues the case for subsidy if theatre is not to stagnate, falling back on the tried and true. Hall also argues that the very best theatre can only be made with a permanent company of actors and technicians in their own building, an ideal he briefly enjoyed with his own repertory company at the Old Vic.

A vital contribution to the continuing debate about the place of theatre—and indeed the arts in general—in our society published as part of the Dramatic Contexts series. Other titles in the series are Evoking (and forgetting!) Shakespeare by Peter Brook, Poetics by Aristotle and The Ground on Which I Stand by August Wilson.
