Since The Théâtre du Grand-Guignol closed its doors forty years ago, the genre has been overlooked by critics and theatre historians. This book reconsiders the importance and influence of the Grand-Guignol within its social, cultural and historical contexts, and is the first attempt at a major evaluation of the genre as performance.
<p><p><BR>From the authors of the successful <em>Grand-Guignol </em>and <em>London’s Grand Guignol</em> - also published by UEP – this book includes translations of a further eleven plays, adding significantly to the repertoire of Grand-Guignol plays available in the English language.</p><BR><P></p>
A companion to UEP’s Grand-Guignol: The French Theatre of Horror (now in its third reprint). London’s Grand Guignol was established in the early 1920s at the Little Theatre in the West End. It was a high-profile venture that enjoyed popular success as much as critical controversy.
