Summary
"This collection of contemporary post-colonial plays demonstrates the vitality of a body of work that is currently influencing the shape of contemporary world theatre. Dealing with imperialism and its aftermath, the plays use a wide range of dramaturgical techniques drawn from Western theatre and local performance traditions. The anthology includes a general introduction which outlines the major thematics issues raised by post-colonial plays. Individual introductions to plays include biographical information on the author; an overview of the plays' cultural context and major ideas, and an outline of the play's performance history."--Jacket
