At last, a book I have always needed - the idiot’s guide to the use of technology in the theatre… this excellent new book by Mark Ager and John Hastie reveals to anyone interested in theatrical stagecraft the common-sense thought processes that go into using automation in the theatre. From the simplest effect to jaw-dropping coup de théâtre, technology is just a tool to make the difficult look simple.
Sir Cameron Mackintosh, foreword
