The Group Theatre: Passion, Politics, and Performance in the Depression Era

Theatre historian Helen Krich Chinoy's unfinished manuscript on the Group Theatre--three decades in the writing--has been edited for publication by Don B. Wilmeth and Milly S. Barranger. Chinoy wrote a pioneering study of the Group Theatre's collective vision for a new kind of theatre and a new approach to an acting process known as "the Method." Important figures in the creation of the Group were Harold Clurman, Lee Strasberg, Cheryl Crawford, and Stella Adler.
