9780253215390: African Theatre: Women

This second annual volume in the African Theatre series focuses on the intersection of politics and theatre in Africa today. Topics include the remarkable collaboration between Horse and Bamboo, a puppet theatre company based in the United Kingdom, and Nigerian playwright Sam Ukala that was inspired by the infamous execution of Nigerian playwright Ken Saro-Wiwa and other Ogoni activists; the plays of Femi Osofisan; and plays by Ghanaian playwrights Joe de Graft and Mohammed Ben-Abdallah. African Theatre features the work of Mauritian playwright Dev Virahsawmy and includes an interview with him, reviews of an English production of his play, Toufann, as well as the translated playscript. Reports of workshops and conferences, reviews, and news of the year in African theatre make this volume a valuable resource for anyone interested in current issues in African drama and performance.

Review:

African Theatre: Women is a refreshingly original collection of essays. Offering detailed information on a wide range of theatrical traditions as well as in-depth studies of individual playwrights, the book covers material from the entire continent ... As with the other titles in the African Theatre series, African Theatre: Women introduces readers to a fascinating variety of theatre projects and practices from the entire continent ... If a single message emerges from the volume, it is that the category of 'African women' is polyphonic rather than monolithic, infused with a multitude of traditions and ambitions. - Stephanie Newell in AFRICAN RESEARCH & DOCUMENTATION
