Scholars of contemporary theater and drama and of African American literature will find value in this engaging collection.' – Choice 'For students and scholars of American theatre and drama generally and African American theatre and drama most particularly, this is an extremely valuable critical source.' – Harry Elam, Stanford University, USA In the last fifty years, American and World theatre has been challenged and enriched by the rise to prominence of numerous female African American dramatists.

Summary Book Review Contemporary African American Female Playwrights :

Download or read book Contemporary African American Female Playwrights written by Dana A. Williams and published by Greenwood Publishing Group. This book was released on 1998 with total page 124 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Though Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun (1959) raised the world's awareness of the abilities of African American female playwrights, both the theater and the literary world often have neglected to include contemporary African American women dramatists within the circle of production, publication, and criticism. This reference book sheds light on the achievement of these playwrights and directs researchers to studies of their works. The first section includes a selected listing of anthologies that contain one or more plays by an African American female dramatist who has published at least one play since 1959. The second provides entries for reference works and for general and scholarly criticism about the dramatists and their plays. The third gives a selected listing of individual dramatists' published plays, with summaries of each drama; the dramatists' primary works related to drama; and secondary works that treat the dramatists and their plays. Entries are accompanied by concise yet informative annotations. The volume closes with a selected listing of periodicals that typically publish criticism of African American female playwrights, brief biographical sketches of the dramatists, and extensive indexes.

Download or read book Contemporary Black and Asian Women Playwrights in Britain written by Gabriele Griffin and published by Cambridge University Press. This book was released on 2003-12-08 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This text was the first monograph to document and analyse the plays written by Black and Asian women in Britain. The volume explores how Black and Asian women playwrights theatricalize their experiences of migration, displacement, identity, racism and sexism in Britain. Plays by writers such as Tanika Gupta, Winsome Pinnock, Maya Chowdhry and Amrit Wilson, among others - many of whom have had their work produced at key British theatre sites - are discussed in some detail. Other playwrights' work is also briefly explored to suggest the range and scope of contemporary plays. The volume analyses concerns such as geographies of un/belonging, reverse migration (in the form of tourism), sexploitation, arranged marriages, the racialization of sexuality, and asylum seeking as they emerge in the plays, and argues that Black and Asian women playwrights have become constitutive subjects of British theatre.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Breaking new ground in this century, this wide-ranging collection of essays is the first of its kind to address the work of contemporary international women playwrights. The book considers the work of established playwrights such as Caryl Churchill, Marie Clements, Lara Foot-Newton, Maria Irene Fornes, Sarah Kane, Lisa Kron, Young Jean Lee, Lynn Nottage, Suzan-Lori Parks, Djanet Sears, Caridad Svich, and Judith Thompson, but it also foregrounds important plays by many emerging writers. Divided into three sections-Histories, Conflicts, and Genres-the book explores such topics as the feminist history play, solo performance, transcultural dramaturgies, the identity play, the gendered terrain of war, and eco-drama, and encompasses work from the United States, Canada, Latin America, Oceania, South Africa, Egypt, and the United Kingdom. With contributions from leading international scholars and an introductory overview of the concerns and challenges facing women playwrights in this new century, Contemporary Women Playwrights explores the diversity and power of women's playwriting since 1990, highlighting key voices and examining crucial critical and theoretical developments within the field.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Fine reading and a superb resource." -- Ms. "Highly recommended." -- Library Journal "Perkins has chosen the plays well, and her issue-oriented introduction places the women and their works in a literary and historical context." -- Choice "As well as being centered on the black experience, the plays in Black Female Playwrights are centered on the female experience." -- Voice Literary Supplement "Perkins' anthology is valuable for a number of reasons... Perkins' book (which includes a bibliography of plays and pageants by black women before 1950 as well as a selected bibliography of critical works) is a major help in providing access to [the world of black drama]." -- Theatre Journal The need to acknowledge these works was the impetus behind this volume. Perkins has selected nineteen plays from seven writers who were among the major dramatizers of the black experience during this early period. As forerunners to the activist black theater of the 1950s and 1960s, these plays represent a critical stage in the development of black drama in the United States.

The editors provide a helpful Introduction to the last 100 years of theatrical activity, from suffrage and anti-lynching plays, through the explosive 1960s, to recent Broadway triumphs, highlighting women's struggle-a struggle that continues--to put their vision and voices on the American stage." Elin Diamond, Rutgers University, USA This book celebrates the iconoclastic power of seven American women playwrights who pushed their work outside the box of conventional drama. To support student use, each play is accompanied by a short introduction. This provides the biographical background of the playwright as well as discussing the dramatic style of her writing, the extent to which her work is informed by and against the major playwrights of the period and how the specific work illustrates the overarching themes which her body of work addresses. Also covered are the historical and cultural context in which the play was presented, the feminist political context of the playwright and the performance practice of productions of the play. This anthology celebrates the iconoclastic power of seven American women playwrights who pushed their work outside the box of conventional drama. The plays and playwrights featured are: Susan Yankowitz's Gun; Ntozake Shange's Spell #7; Beth Henley's The Jacksonian; Paula Vogel's The Baltimore Waltz; Suzan-Lori Parks's In the Blood; and Lynn Nottage's Intimate Apparel. The volume celebrates fifty years of playwrights who have been continuously working in, and shaping, contemporary American theater.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Four Caribbean Women Playwrights aims to expand Caribbean and postcolonial studies beyond fiction and poetry by bringing to the fore innovative women playwrights from the French Caribbean: Ina Césaire, Maryse Condé, Gerty Dambury, Suzanne Dracius. Focussing on the significance of these women writers to the French and French Caribbean cultural scenes, the author illustrates how their work participates in global trends within postcolonial theatre. The playwrights discussed here all address socio-political issues, gender stereotypes, and the traumatic slave and colonial pasts of the Caribbean people. Investigating a range of plays from the 1980s to the early 2010s, including some works that have not yet featured in academic studies of Caribbean theatre, and applying theories of postcolonial theatre and local Caribbean theatre criticism, Four Caribbean Women Playwrights should appeal to scholars and students in the Humanities, and to all those interested in the postcolonial, the Caribbean, and contemporary theatre.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book presents an analysis of the many plays written by women in the American theatre in the first half of the century. Such playwrights as Rachel Crothers, Zona Gale, Susan Glaspell, Edna Ferber, and Lillian Hellman were popular and successful contributors to the stage. Many of their plays won such awards as the Pulitzer Prize, the Drama Critics Circle Award, and Tony Awards. The plays are discussed in terms of their popular and critical value and placed within the historical and social background of the period. In this time of intense change for women in American society, the plays reflect the new demands for freedom, careers, the right to vote, equality with men, and the right to intellectual development. Shafer calls attention to many fine plays which deserve production today.
