"This collection of distinguished writings by John Whiting first emerged during the most exciting and eventful decade in twentieth-century British theatre - 1952 to 1962." "John Whiting was a highly original playwright as well as formidable critic. Perhaps Whiting's central concern was to champion the individual, against a Brechtian focus on 'the group'. He writes in this collection. 'I am not committed to any specific movement ... I have always written on moral problems of a humanist kind, not of a religious kind.'"--Cover
