MODERN BRITISH, IRISH, AND AMERICAN DRAMA:

A DESCRIPTIVE CHRONOLOGY, 1865 - 1965

Charles A. Carpenter


This website supplies a distinctive kind of reference source for students of drama and theatre: a thorough, authoritative chronology tracing and describing the development of modern dramatic literature and theory in Great Britain, Ireland, and the United States from year to year and month to month, beginning in 1865 and ending in 1965. There are also separate links for twelve major dramatists: Wilde, Shaw, Yeats, O'Casey, Eliot, O'Neill, Beckett, Miller, Williams, Osborne, Pinter, and Albee. These have added material, including selective bibliographies of books and parts of books.
