In the last two decades, feminist theatre has become an exciting and important cultural form. This New Casebook presents twelve essays that illustrate the diversity and depth of the field and that pose key questions about the relations of drama to gender. The first section focuses on theory and history, most particularly on the debate between realism and Brechtian non-realism. Part II presents critical analyses of key plays and productions. The last two essays draw attention to the rapid internationalization of feminist theatre and the critical writing it has engendered.
