    Moliere's plays transformed the writing of seventeenth century comedy, savagely satirising the Establishment of his day, and surviving only because he had the unwavering support of Louis XIV. His private life was even more controversial than his plays. Did he really tumble in and out of bed with so many beautiful people of both sexes? Did he marry his own daughter? Why did the Church refuse to bury him? Nicholas Dromgoole's play gives us fresh insight into this astonishing creative artist.

    Until the beginning of the 20th Century, when naturalism began to assert its powerful influence on western theatre, acting was a very different business indeed. Rather than attempting to reproduce realistic behaviour, actors conveyed their characters' feelings and intentions by using a vocabulary of minutely prescribed and highly stylised movements and gestures, each with it's own meaning and significance.In this wide-ranging, illustrated survey, Nicholas Dromgoole traces the origins and evolution of this lost 'language of gesture' from ancient Greece to the contemporary stage, and asks what it would actually have been like to watch the great plays - and the great actors - of western theatre in their own day.

    In The Playwright as Rebel, Nicholas Dromgoole's essays in theatre history not only examine particular plays at key moments in drama history, but in setting them in their cultural and historical context, attempt to answer these wider questions. Theatre is seen as playing a key part in disseminating ideas, attitudes and assumptions at crucial moments of social and ideological change. As a result we approach his chosen plays and playwrights with an enhanced understanding of what they were setting out to achieve.
