Summary
Staging Place: The Geography of Modern Drama is the first book-length study of modern drama's relentless concern with the role and meaning of place in social and theatrical experience. Covering the major dramatic movements from naturalism to multiculturalism (with playwrights ranging from Ibsen, Strindberg, and O'Neill to Churchill, Hwang, and Kushner), the book reconceptualizes the content and continuities of theater history, showing them to be informed by a century-long struggle with the meaning and power of place.

By reading canonical works in conjunction with contemporary ones, Staging Place charts the evolution of a dramatic paradigm
