Andrew Stott's The Pantomime Life of Joseph Grimaldi and The Oxford Handbook of Early Modern Theatre, edited by Richard Dutton, were the remaining books selected by the judging panel.

The prize, to be announced on April 27th at the Theatre Royal's Grand Saloon, will be judged by actor and Stars In Your Eyes presenter Matthew Kelly, Sunday Express theatre critic Mark Shenton and Professor Jane Moody of the University of York.

Last year, Theatre and Globalisation: Irish Drama in the Celtic Tiger Era by Patrick Lonergan was named as the winner of the Theatre Book Prize, seeing off competition from Dominic Shellard, Jane Goodall, Michael Holroyd, Bill McDonnell, Will Hammond and Dan Steward.
