An annotated bibliography of some 500 published England-language plays, which are discussed not just as literary texts but also in relation to performance practice. The entries summarize the plot, identify features that set the play apart, and critique its impact. The plays engage such topics as polygamy, workers' uprisings, apartheid South Africa, and the myths of the Yoruba gods. A thematic and generic index allows readers to find plays dealing with desired topics. A substantial essay and non-annotated bibliography cover secondary works on Nigerian drama. The main listing is alphabetical by playwright; indexes in addition to the thematic are by dramatists, authors of secondary works, and play titles. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
