Staging Difference

Cultural Pluralism in American Theatre and Drama – Second Printing


Edited By Marc Maufort

This volume seeks to determine how contemporary American playwrights and theatre practitioners translate the current debate on cultural pluralism in the United States. While offering re-visions of the Melting Pot, they often challenge its idealistic assumptions, thus inscribing in their work the cultural difference of minorities. Up to now, scholars have studied isolated aspects of this phenomenon. Staging Difference tries to offer a more comprehensive vision, examining the influence of multiculturalism both on performance and dramatic literature.
