The intention of the thesis is to provide an overall and comprehensive history of the solo contribution to the theatre in terms of the one-person performance. To do so, research has been made into the single performer through the ages, and his progress has been traced from his emergence from the Greek Chorus to his latest manifestations in terms of the dramatised autobiography. Many of the problems faced and conclusions reached are those which affect any actor in whatever genre he chooses to perform, but in this instance, special emphasis is placed on the solo aspect, and discussion centred on these points.
