9780415084956: West End Women: Women and the London Stage 1918 - 1962 (Gender in Performance)

Maggie Gale's West End Women uncovers groundbreaking material about women playwrights and the staging of their performances between the years 1918 and 1962.
It documents a dynamic era of social and theatrical history, analysing the transformations that occurred in the theatre and the lives of British women in relation to specific plays of the period. Focusing on the work of playwrights such as Dodie Smith, Clemence Dane, Gordon Daviot and Bridget Boland, Maggie Gale examines the cultural and political context within which they enjoyed commercial success and great notoriety.

About the Author:

Maggie B. Gale is a Lecturer in Drama and Theatre Arts at the University of Birmingham, England. She is co-editor, with Susan Bassnett, of Women and Theatre Journal.

Review:

'This is a tremendously useful book which fully contextualises the work of women playwrights this century ... Gale predicates her study on close readings of the playtexts themselves. This she achieves with a witty lightness of touch and keen eye that quickly draws the reader into the world of the play ... ' - Theatre Research International
