Item description for A People's Theatre Comes of Age: A Study of Icelandic Theatre, 1860-1920 by Sveinn Einarsson...

The title, A People's Theatre Comes of Age, has two connotations. It describes a theatre that has grown from the grassroots, and not by any formal decree or any such incitements - a theatre of the people. The theatrical endeavours that took place in Iceland during the period in question, which ranges from 1860 to 1920, gradually brought about a consciousness of ability and quality which was a prerequisite for professionalism. In the evolution of a theatre or theatrical phenomena in any country, the step from amateurish endeavours to professional art is crucial. Indeed, the social and artistic consequences of such a step are of the utmost significance for a country's culture in general. The signs of this development can be noticed in totally different criteria ranging from playwriting and repertory to the art of playing. The eventual transition into professionalism can form the ultimate goal both for those directly involved and for all theatre lovers in any given society. The borderline between amateur and professional theatre is nonetheless a thin one. One grows out of the other. Indeed, amateur theatre provides the roots for a living professional theatre, which in turn offers both model and stimulation to those who follow. The role of the amateur theatre in this regard is often underestimated. These and other issues are discussed in this title by Iceland's leading expert on the theater.
