British Theatre and the Red Peril: The Portrayal of Communism 1917-1945
This work explores how communism was portrayed in plays in the British theatre between 1917 and 1945, and how at a time when the capitalist system seemed on the verge of collapse, the theatre played a significant part in communicating and manipulating political propaganda in order to influence audiences. It reveals explicit right-wing propaganda produced within mainstram British theatre and questions the assumption that political theatre is almost always left-wing.
