Staging the People : Community and Identity in the Federal Theatre Project Hardback
Part of the Palgrave Studies in Theatre and Performance History series
The Federal Theatre Project, a New Deal plan to fund theatre and other live artistic performances during the Great Depression, had the primary goal of employing out-of-work artists, writers, and directors, with the secondary aim of entertaining poor families and creating relevant art.
These case studies explore the ties between the Federal Theatre Project and regional communities throughout the United States.
