The Other American Drama proposes an alternative to the received history of American drama, the Eugene O’Neil/Arthur Miller/August Wilson line of development so familiar to readers of standard drama surveys. Robinson’s book discusses Gertrude Stein, Maria Irene Fornes, Adrienne Kennedy and Richard Foreman as essential members of modern American theater rather than as curious fringe figures. It also rethinks such familiar figures as Tennessee Williams and Sam Shepard.
