The first part of this book, ‘An Introduction to the Grand-Guignol’, reconsiders the importance and influence of the Grand-Guignol within its social, cultural and historical contexts in the first attempt at a major evaluation of the genre as performance. The authors give full consideration to practical applications and to the challenges presented to the actor and director. The second part of the book, ‘Ten Plays of the Grand-Guignol’, provides outstanding new translations of a selection of Grand-Guignol plays. The presentation of these plays in English is an invitation to theatres to revive them as well as an implicit demand for a total reappraisal of the Grand-Guignol genre, not least for the unexpected inclusion of two very funny comedies.
