About this title


Since the middle of the twentieth century, Turkish playwriting has
been notable for its verve and versatility. This two-volume anthology is
the first major collection of plays in English of modern Turkish drama, a
selection dealing with ancient Anatolian mythology, Ottoman
history, contemporary social issues and family dramas, ribald comedy
from Turkey's cities and rural areas. It also includes several plays set
outside Turkey.
The two volumes together will feature seventeen plays by major
playwrights published or produced from the late 1940s to the present
day, with volume 1,"?brahim the Mad" and Other Plays, encompassing
plays from the 1940s through the 1960s, and volume 2, Anatolia
and Other Plays, including plays from the 1970s through the 1990s.
They grant to English readers the pleasure of riveting drama in translations
that are colloquial as well as faithful. For producers, directors,
and actors they provide a wealth of fresh, new material, with characters
ranging from Ottoman sultans to a Soviet cosmonaut, from the
Byzantine Empress Theodora to a fisherman's wife, from residents of
an Istanbul neighborhood to King Midas, from Montezuma to a
Turkish cabinet minister.
