Played in Britain celebrates sixty years of remarkable post-war theatre – from J. B. Priestley's classic play, An Inspector Calls (1946), to Laura Wade's Posh (2010).

Presenting a fascinating overview of British theatre, each play is accompanied by an original essay summarising its plot, impact and legacy and features material from the V&A's vast collection.

With narration by Simon Callow and commentary from critic Michael Billington, Played in Britain explores 100 plays which created a contemporary stir, either by provoking public outcry, or by breaking new ground; these are plays that engage with the world around them.

Actors, set designers, costume designers and directors have contributed audio interviews including actor Patrick Stewart (Waiting for Godot, 2009) and costume designer Sue Blane (The Rocky Horror Show, 1973). First night reviews from the Guardian and the Telegraph newspapers provide an insight into contemporary critical opinion.

Played in Britain will be a lasting resource for anyone interested in the performing arts in Britain. Download now from the Apple App Store.
