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 orthe 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.
