This volume is the fourth and final part of Steve Nicholson's analysis of British theater censorship based on previously undocumented material in the Lord Chamberlain's Correspondence Archives in the British Library and the Royal Archives at Windsor. The 1960s was a significant decade for the British, both in social and political spheres, especially in theaters. As certainties shifted and social divisions widened, a new generation of theater makers arrived, ready to sweep away yesterday's conventions and challenge the establishment. Focusing on plays we know, plays we have forgotten, and plays that were silenced forever, this book reveals how a powerful elite exerted pressure over these new voices in an attempt to preserve the veneer of a polite, unquestioning society.
