Regular price $10.00

Community Drama, Its Motive and Method of Neighborliness, 1917, originated as a lecture which Mackaye gave in December, 1916, in Washington, DC at a conference of workers in the fields of education, recreation and community organizing. He opened his lecture with a question, "Can we poor human beings never realize our quality without Destruction?"

In this paperback book Percy Mackaye (1875-1956) outlined his ideas for community participation.

During his life MacKaye produced several pageants, the best known being Caliban: By the Yellow Sands, produced at the Harvard Stadium June 28-July 9, 1917.
