"Ur-Drama: The Origins of Theatre," by Ernest Theodore Kirby.

From the book cover: "The origin of drama is one of the best-known and most widely discussed scholarly problems in the academic study of theatre. In Ur-Drama, E. Kirby proposes that shamanism rather than nature worship gave rise to most drama, not merely classical Greek drama, but diverse forms in many parts of the world, including India, China, Japan, and Europe. Covering a cross-section of primitive cultures to support his theory on the relationship of shamanism to original theatre, Kirby discovers in the trance rituals of shamanistic performance, prototheatre, 'ur-drama,' and makes a contribution to theatre history which will mark his work as a standard reference in the field."

Vintage softcover book published in 1975 by New York University. Has black & white photos and illustrations, bibliography, 164 pp., and measures 7 x 10 in. Very good condition with slight yellowing to cover.
