Summary

  • "Dealing with imperialism and its aftermath, the plays use a wide range of dramaturgical techniques drawn from Western theatre and local performance traditions. Agit-prop dialogue, musical routines, storytelling, ritual incantation, epic narration, dance, multimedia presentation and puppetry are among the many ways through which individuals and groups express their concerns." "Postcolonial Plays: An Anthology includes a general introduction that outlines key issues relevant to the study of postcolonial theatre. Individual introductions to plays include biographical information on the author, an overview of the play's main thematic concerns and performance features, and a summary of its performance history."--Jacket.
