Shakespearean productions continue to flourish today, with considerable activity at Stratford-upon-Avon in England. This book supplies basic information on Shakespearean and non-Shakespearean plays produced at Stratford-upon-Avon from 1979 to 1993, and makes accessible information on all productions during these years by the Royal Shakespeare Company. The volume is based on the archives of the Shakespeare Memorial/Royal Shakespeare Theatre, the preeminent theatre for Shakespeare in the world.

The volume lists each production by play title. Each entry provides detailed cast and production information, along with a list of reviews. Indexes at the end of the volume allow the user to locate entries for all plays by a particular playwright, director, actor, or reviewer. Thus, it is easy to compare the different plays of a director, or to trace the work of an actor, or to note the plays commented on by a particular reviewer. Introductory material overviews the history of theatre at Stratford-upon-Avon, and a calendar of productions lists the various plays chronologically.
