Ibsen, Strindberg and the Intimate Theater
Studies in TV Presentation
Distributed for Amsterdam University Press
By means of close readings of textual passages, followed by transcriptions and analyses of the corresponding passages in the productions, Törnqvist throws a revealing light on the difference between the textual and the audiovisual medium as well as between various directorial approaches. The first book to deal with the adaptation of stage drama to the small screen, it fills a gap both for students of drama and theatre and for those generally interested in television drama as an art form.
