Performing Gender Violence : Plays by Contemporary American Women Dramatists Hardback
Edited by Barbara Ozieblo, Noelia Hernando-Real
Violence against women in plays bywomen has earned little mention.
This revolutionary collection fills that gap, focusing on plays by American women dramatists, written in the last thirty years, that deal with different forms of gender violence.
Each author discusses specific manifestations of violence in carefully selected plays: psychological, familial, war-time, and social injustice.
This book encompasses the theatrical devices used to represent violence on the stage in an age of virtual, immediate reality as much as the problematics of gender violence in modern society.
