Discussion of the British theatre tends to focus on "the West End Theatre" which emerged in the late nineteenth century. In Other Theatres, Andrew Davies provides a lively introduction to the important tradition of alternative and experimental theatre as it has developed over the last 200 years. He considers a broad range of initiatives include Yiddish drama, suffragette theatre, Irish and Scottish drama, the repertory movement, army theatre, Joan Littlewood's Theatre Workshop, alternative theatre since the 1960s, and television drama, tracing out their relationship both to mainstream theatre and to one another.
