Italian Women's Theatre, 1930-1960 : An Anthology of Plays, Paperback / softback Book

Italian Women's Theatre, 1930-1960 : An Anthology of Plays Paperback / softback

Edited by Daniela Cavallaro

Part of the Playtext series

Paperback / softback


Between 1930 and 1960, popular female dramatists, including Paola Riccora, Anna Bonacci, Clotilde Masci, and Gici Ganzini Granata, set the stage for a new generation of feminist theatre and the development of contemporary Italian women’s theatre as a whole.

Now largely forgotten, the lives and works of these dramatists are reintroduced into the scholarly conversation in Italian Women’s Theatre, 1930–1960.

Following a general introduction, the book presents a selection of dramatic works, rounded out by commentary, performance histories, critical analyses, and biographical information.
