In commemorating the one-hundredth issue of New Theatre Quarterly, in continuation of Theatre Quarterly, we wanted to reflect the concern of the journals with offering a referenced record and retrospect of the performing arts – so here we offer a record and retrospect of the journals themselves. We hope it will provide a useful source of reference, and intend that in due course the indexes will be incorporated and updated on the NTQ pages of the Cambridge University Press website. A consecutive, issue-by-issue listing of contents is followed by author indexes – these latter separately indexing each journal, as it was our feeling that many present readers will not have easy access to the original journal, and that a cumulation might also prove confusing since the numbering sequence started afresh with NTQ. References are to these ‘TQ’ and ‘NTQ’ numbers rather than to volumes and parts, but annual volumes can be quickly identified from the list at the start of each index. The compiler, as author of A Classification for the Performing Arts (British Theatre Institute, 1974), is aware of the irony of failing to offer a subject or classified listing, which resources of time at present do not permit: he would be happy to make available on disk the material presented below to anybody interested in undertaking such a task, with a view to future publication.
