By Dudley Cocke, Harry Newman, and Sanet Salmons-Rue

A concise matrix designed to address the questions: What makes a grassroots theater a grassroots theater? What ideals and principles distinguish it from other kinds of theater activity in the country? What elements and goals do the various grassroots theater efforts in the U.S. have in common? 

Excerpted from: From the Ground Up: Grassroots Theater in Historical and Contemporary Perspective; Ithaca, New York: Cornell University, 1993.
