Curtain Up!


This volume brings together for the first time a selection of Paul Xuereb’s theatre reviews, originally published in 'The Sunday Times of Malt'a from 1963 to 2015. The range of performances selected, from commedia dell’arte to Elizabethan tragedy, from Aristophanes to Trevor Zahra, gives a good indication of the variety of theatre that was being produced and seen in Malta during the period. The book is enriched by a detailed list of all performances reviewed by the author and a comprehensive index, as well as by hundreds of colour and black and white documentary photographs. This is a must-read book for anyone interested in the development of theatre in Malta. Theatre researchers will find a mine of information that had never been available in a single volume, while theatre-goers of the past and of the present will enjoy re-reading reviews of performances that have often been milestones in the development of our theatre.
