Making a Spectacle: Feminist Essays on Contemporary Women's Theatre is the first wide-ranging collection of scholarly articles to apply feminist perspectives to the work of women writers for the stage. The book breaks new ground in the field of feminist criticism, by confronting the absence or minimization of women theatre artists, discussing the strategies of women writers who are appropriating the stage to assert their own images, analyzing the politics of theatrical reception and production, and deconstructing the ideology of dramatic representations.
