The Drama of Gender

Feminist Theater by Women of the Americas

Series:

Yolanda Flores

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.
