Summary:
This volume draws together six contemporary plays by female African writers, offering a rare insight into the work being produced by these practitioners. These plays, which are selected from writers across the continent, together give a rich portrait of identity, politics, culture and society in contemporary Africa. The editors of the volume have also provided biographies and the writers' own artistic statements; production histories; and a critical contextualisation of the theatre from which each woman is writing. This provides a rich context from which these plays can be prescribed for study, both at secondary school and undergraduate level--Provided by publisher.
