Description:

What makes Tragedy tragic? What makes Comedy comic? What does Henry V have in common with The Sopranos? Seneca with Desperate Housewives? Goldoni with Frasier? In Genre Andrew Tidmarsh explores these questions and more in an entertaining and accessible book aimed at explaining the parameters of each form: how Greek Tragedy differs from Roman Tragedy and how Elizabethan Tragedy is a combination of both; or how Comedy of Manners is distinct from Farce. A practical guide, each chapter includes exercises in writing, acting and devising in the various genres discussed. Genre is aimed at those with an interest in story and narrative and can be used by students, actors and directors alike. A useful book for private study or as a classroom textbook for A-level and undergraduate students Genre changes the way we watch theatre, television and film, as we begin to appreciate that all stories are somehow linked to their evolutionary prototypes, and understand how we can contribute to these building blocks of traditional theatre.
