AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Between the 1920s and 1940s there was a diverse flowering of amateur theatres in Adelaide which were experimental, inventive and ahead of their time, anticipating later theatre movements. Dreamers and Visionaries explores the rise and fall of these little theatres, reviewing their performances and personalities, and celebrating their outstanding legacy of experimentation. Afford shows how such groups greatly enhanced the South Australian theatre scene, forming the basis of Adelaide's reputation as 'the city of culture' and helping to contribute to the development of the Adelaide Festival of Arts.' (Publisher's blurb)
