|Dr Heinrich takes Yorkshire and Westphalia as his two representative regions, detailing the history of theatre in York, Hull, Sheffield, Bradford and Leeds as well as in Munster, Dortmund, Hagen, Bielefeld and Bochum. Dr Heinrich moves from the histories and repertoires of individual theatres to examine their social function, with interesting results. The perception of theatre in Britain changed dramatically during the War years: suddenly the British government became interested in influencing the arts and introduced state subsidies on an unprecedented scale. At the heart of the new policy was t only the belief that theatre could play an important role in the war effort (as both entertainment and education) but also a concept of municipal theatre provision which was, in effect, similar to that which already prevailed in Germany.In Germany, despite claims by the Nazis that theatre programmes must reflect National-Socialist ideas, regional repertoires remained largely unchanged from the days of the Weimar Republic, with comedies, farces and operettas designed to appeal to public taste. In successfully challenging dominant views regarding the alleged fundamental differences between British and German theatre, Dr Heinrich's findings mean that, to an extent, a key chapter in European theatre history must be rewritten.|
