Theatre: Its Nature, Its Variety, Its Development is laid out in a nontraditional format for introductory theatre courses. The nature of theatre is difficult enough to understand without imposing a 2,500 year barrier to that process.

After students have a solid understanding of the nature of theatre and significant awareness of the variety of theatre, then they will be better equipped to begin studying theatre in its historical context.
