Regular price €8.00

The Fugitive Art is a selection of articles about English theatre, covering the years 1947-1951, during which time Worsley was writing as drama critic for the New Statesman.

It was a time when English theatre was in a lively state of ferment. The conventional three-act drama seemed to be passing out of favour, the plays of T.S. Eliot and Christopher Fry were reintroducing verse to the theatre and the taste was for large-scale, lavishly mounted productions of the classics.

Thomas Cuthbert Worsley (1907–1977), who wrote as T. C. Worsley, was a British teacher, writer, editor, and theatre and television critic.

Published by John Lehmann  in 1952.  First edition.
