Book Description Temple University Press,U.S., United States, 1998. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. At a time when Asian American theater is enjoying a measure of growth and success, Josephine Lee tells us about the complex social and political issues depicted by Asian American playwrights. By looking at performances and dramatic texts, Lee argues that playwrights produce a different conception of u0022Asian America u0022 in accordance with their unique set of sensibilities. For instance, some Asian American playwrights critique the separation of issues of race and ethnicity from those of economics and class, or they see ethnic identity as a voluntary choice of lifestyle rather than an impetus for concerted political action. Others deal with the problem of cultural stereotypes and how to reappropriate their power. Lee is attuned to the complexities and contradictions of such performances, and her trenchant thinking about the criticisms lobbed at Asian American playwrights -- for their choices in form, perpetuation of stereotype, or apparent sexism or homophobia -- leads her to question how the presentation of Asian American identity in the theater parallels problems and possibilities of identity offstage as well. Discussed are better-known plays such as Frank Chin s The Chickencoop Chinaman, David Henry Hwang s M. Butterfly, and Velina Hasu Houston s Tea, and new works like Jeannie Barroga s Walls and Wakako Yamauchi s 12-1-a. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9781566396370
