The Theatre of Naomi Wallace : Embodied Dialogues Hardback

Edited by Erica Stevens Abbitt


Naomi Wallace, an American playwright based in Britain, is one of the more original and provocative voices in contemporary theatre.

Her poetic, erotically-charged, and politically engaged plays have been seen in London's West End, off-Broadway, at the Comedie-Francaise, in regional and provincial theaters, and on college campuses around the world.

Known for their intimate, sensual encounters examining the relationship between identity and power, Wallace's works have attracted a wide range of theatre practitioners, including such important directors as Dominic Dromgoole, Ron Daniels, Jo Bonney, and Kwame Kwei-Armah.

Drawing on scholars, activists, historians, and theatre artists in the United States, Canada, Britain, and the Middle East, this anthology of essays presents a comprehensive overview of Wallace's body of work that will be of use to theatre practitioners, students, scholars, and educators alike.
