Reviews for Theatre as Sign System: A Semiotics of Text and Performance

This is a book aimed at students yet to be introduced into the field, rather than at those who have already had some exposure to semiotics and theatre. As such, it provides an easy entrance through its clarity and succinctness. - Theatre Survey
