This study presents analyses of a wide range of contemporary plays written by women dramatists from a feminist theoretical perspective. It offers creative insights into the exchange between women's dramatic writing and feminist theories of subjectivity and representation in the last three decades and attends to the processes through which the female subject is reconfigured in the theatrical and theoretical spaces created by women. The book is valuable reading for students of theatre and comparative studies, as well as anyone interested in women's writing. The authors treated include Hélène Cixous, Timberlake Wertenbaker, Helen Edmundson, Caryl Churchill, Sheila Yeger, April De Angelis, Anna Furse, Wendy Kesselman, Susan Sontag, Liz Lochhead.
