In this encyclopaedia we use the adjective British (as in “British theatre”, etc.) to refer to people born and living in Great Britain (the United Kingdom) and to the works they have produced. (So it is inclusive of Irish, Scottish, Welsh, etc.) This as distinguished from "English" which in this publication (and quite generally in everyday language in South Africa) refers to English speaking people living in South Africa and the works they have produced in the English language.
