Description

At last an accessible and intelligent introduction to the energising and challenging relationship between feminism and theatre.

In this clear and enlightening book, Aston discusses wide-ranging theoretical topics and provides case studies including:

* Feminism and theatre history

* `M/Othering the self': French feminist theory and theatre

* Black women: shaping feminist theatre

* Performing gender: a materialist practice

* Colonial landscapes

Feminist thought is changing the way theatre is taught and practised. An Introduction to Feminism and Theatre is compulsory reading for anyone who requires a precise, insightful and up-to-date guide to this dynamic field of study.
