Established in 1989, WES is an indispensable resource for keeping abreast of the latest theatre developments in Western Europe. Each issue contains a wealth of information about recent European festivals and productions, including reviews, interviews, and reports. Winter issues focus on the theatre in individual countries or on special themes. News of forthcoming events: the latest in changes in artistic directorships, new plays and playwrights, outstanding performances, and directorial interpretations.
Edited by Distinguished Professor Marvin Carlson.
“This wonderful and unique publication is a record of contemporary Western European theatrical performance. It is an apt substitute for a country-by-country collection of performance record publications, something only the largest academic libraries can support…given its price and coverage, any academic or special library with an active performance community should consider its purchase.” – Bowker’s Magazines for Libraries
