Summary
  • "The Drama of Gender fills the scholarly gap between women's dramaturgy and feminism as women manifest themselves on contemporary stages across the Americas. The plays examined - Lua nua by Leilah Assucao, Simply Maria or the American Dream by Josefina Lopez ... Y a otra cosa mariposa by Susana Torres Molina, and Cocinar hombres by Carmen Boullosa - exhibit a desire to deconstruct patriarchal notions of gendered roles and behaviors, compulsory heterosexuality, and dramatic forms."--Jacket
