Women in European Theatre is both a study of women as writers and performers in Britain, France, Germany and Italy, and a study of conditions in the theatre as they affect women from the century to the 1970s. It also draws attention to a number of plays by women which have never appeared in print and some which have only just been republished after centuries of neglect.

The book is dedicated to the memory of Lizzie Howe, author of The First Restoration Actresses (CUP 1992) who was tragically murdered at an Open University summer school in 1992 and it contains a previously unpublished article by her.
