It provides a balanced assessment of the major plays and playwrights of the period, and shows how they broke new ground in their contribution to political, economic, social and cultural debates, as well as in their innovative dramaturgical strategies. In particular, the author shows how theatre and drama experienced the flourishing of Broadway, off-Broadway, and regional theatres, as well as trends such as realism, naturalism, melodrama, irony, satire, modernism, avant-garde, and experimentalism. Themes and movements highlighted include: the American dream of wealth and the desire for spiritual sustenance; conflicts in the American family; and the struggles for racial, gender, ethnic, and sexual equality.

  • Aphra Behn Stages the Social Scene in the Restoration Theatre

    By Dawn Lewcock

    Our Price: $104.95
    • Format: Hardcover
    • ISBN-13: 9781604975499
    • Publisher: Lightning Source Inc
    • Published: September 2008
    Since the fairly recent re-discovery of Behn, scholars have closely examined her as a feminist archetype, rebel and radical author. Few, however, have placed her so well in her own true contexts as Lewcock (history of theater and drama emeriti, Cambridge U. Institute of Continuing Education) does here. She considers Behn's plays as theatrical artifacts and examines their presentation in light of the most recent knowledge of seventeenth-century productions on the scenic stage. Lewcock finds innovative ways to analyze the dramas, including employing the witness of Pepys, Jeffrey Boys and the King, as well as that of Behn herself. She closely describes the marketing of Behn's plays according to the sensibilities of the time, the role of satirical criticism in the theater world, the workings of sex without sex, movement patterns and costume, and the role of the audience member as confidant, voyeur, participant, and spectator.
