Description - A Companion to Modern British and Irish Drama by Mary Luckhurst

This wide-ranging Companion to Modern British and Irish Drama offers challenging analyses of a range of plays in their political contexts. It explores the cultural, social, economic and institutional agendas that readers need to engage with in order to appreciate modern theatre in all its complexity. * An authoritative guide to modern British and Irish drama.* Engages with theoretical discourses challenging a canon that has privileged London as well as white English males and realism.* Topics covered include: national, regional and fringe theatres; post-colonial stages and multiculturalism; feminist and queer theatres; sex and consumerism; technology and globalisation; representations of war, terrorism, and trauma.
