Below are some links to do with important historical milestones and movements in theatrical history in summary form. Some of the links are to my own work in areas that I am particularly interested in (eg Shakespeare), others to websites by others that I think are useful on the topic (no point re-inventing the wheel).
- Here is a link to a good overview on the history of theatre on the Slideshare site.
- Shakespeare (mine)
- Below is a link to another useful Slideshare presentation that gives a great overview of what I call the “-isms” – theatrical movements and styles – that have led to modern theatre.
