Description

The Gateway Theatre Company was from 1953 until 1965 a major force in developing modern Scottish theatre. Yet, until now, no scholarly text has explored the history of the Gateway Theatre building - in turn veterinary college, roller skating rink, cinema and theatre - while only memoirs of former Gateway Company members exist as a record of this highly influential company. This book is a must for those interested in theatre in general, Scottish cultural history and cultural affairs. It will be particularly valued by theatre scholars and an essential text for University libraries and Drama departments.
