The Drama of Gender

Feminist Theater by Women of the Americas

by Yolanda Flores (Author)
Monographs VIII, 132 Pages

Summary

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.
