Description

The first anthology of British and Irish women playwrights to survey plays across four hundred years and to offer key dramatic texts in one volume, this collection brings together an extraordinary body of work with enduring appeal. Staged in theatres by successive generations and proving relevant to contemporary audiences, the plays demonstrate the wit, theatrical skill and innovation of their creators in exploring timeless topics from marriage, morality and money to class conflict, rage and sexual desire. An essential resource for students, playwrights, colleges, universities and libraries, this collection also provides theatres with the opportunity to programme a range of theatrical classics by women. Plays from: Hroswitha's 'Paphnutius' (extract); Elizabeth Cary's 'The Tragedy of Mariam'(extract); Aphra Behn's 'The Rover'; Susanna Centlivre's 'A Bold Stroke For A Wife'; Joanna Baillie's 'De Montfort'; Githa Sowerby's 'Rutherford and Son'; Enid Bagnold's 'The Chalk Garden'; Caryl Churchill's 'Top Girls' (extract); Marie Jones' 'Stones in his Pockets'.
