UPDATE: POSTCOLONIAL THEATRE/ DRAMA IN BRITAIN(Call for chapters; book; 15
Breaking the Bounds II: Postcolonial British Stages
Post war it was class which broke the bounds of the British stage; in the 60s
and after it was gender. Increasingly it is the theatre of the Other which is
seen as interesting, as I note in my book Breaking the Bounds: British
Feminist Dramatists Writing in the Mainstream since c. 1980, Peter Lang, 2003. This
critical anthology aims to publish essays on postcolonial theatre in Britain.
Essays are invited which critically analyze and evaluate twentieth century
British Black and Asian drama. I particularly need an historical overview of
Black British drama, which is inclusive of male and female playwrights. Abstracts
of 500 words and a short biography of the author are invited by 15 March 2004.
Abstracts by email only. Please do not send attachments.
