The Drama of Gender
Feminist Theater by Women of the Americas
Monographs VIII, 132 Pages
Series: Wor(l)ds of Change: Latin American and Iberian Literature, Volume 38
The Drama of Gender fills the scholarly gap between women’s dramaturgy and feminism as women manifest themselves on contemporary stages across the Americas. The plays examined – Lua nua by Leilah Assução, Simply Maria or the American Dream by Josefina Lopez, ...Y a otra cosa mariposa by Susana Torres Molina, and Cocinar hombres by Carmen Boullosa – exhibit a desire to deconstruct patriarchal notions of gendered roles and behaviors, compulsory heterosexuality, and dramatic forms.
