University Information

The Society for Theatre Research was founded in 1948. It serves all those interested in the history and technique of British and British-related theatre: academic and independent scholars, researchers, performers and other theatre workers – and of course theatregoers. The only qualification for membership is enthusiasm for the subject.

Founded to encourage research into past and present British theatre practice, the STR is the oldest society of its type in the English-speaking world, with a membership that is international. The Society’s existence added weight to the recognition of theatre as a subject of study in its own right and helped give impetus to the establishment of Departments of Drama in British universities
