Professor Innes sketches the background of Dadaism and Expressionism from which Piscator came, and points out the differences between Piscator and the other experimenters of his time. He also gives a vivid description of Piscators technical innovations, the modern means of communication such as film, the illumination of the stage from below and the treadmill, a flat moving band along which the characters walked. These turned drama into a multi-media event.

Professor Innes uses Piscators career as a focus to describe theatrical developments in the twentieth century and to discuss the role of the author, the director, and the actor in drama, the purpose of the theatre, and the involvement of the audience.
