Enormously enjoyable and informative. The book will do much toconsolidate the upbeat self-consciousness that has been the big story inScottish theatre since the boom of the Seventies.Colin Donald, Scotsman, July 27th 1996.
This is more than a worthwhile book.... Those who are interested owe a debt to the two editors and their contributors.
