Life Themes An Anthology of Plays for the Theatre, 2nd Edition

  • ISBN10: 1-285-46357-9

    ISBN13: 978-1-285-46357-5

  • AUTHORS: Barton/McGregor - ©2015

LIFE THEMES is a drama anthology that provides complete scripts for the 12 plays discussed in PLAYS FOR THE THEATRE's Dramatic Interlude sections. The anthology mirrors the Interludes with six themes: love, war, generations, rebellion, dreams, and values. Each theme is represented by both a classical and a contemporary play. While the first play is usually by a white male from a previous century, the second modern script is from women, Asian-American, Latino, and African-American writers. For each play, the editors provide historical context, a biography about the playwright, an examination of contemporary relevance of the script, a discussion of other works by the playwright, and suggestions for further study.
From the authors, Robert Barton and Annie McGregor: "We hope these 12 plays will not only introduce readers to the breadth, depth, and scope of theatre, but will also engage their minds, emotions, and empathy for a huge spectrum of humanity outside their own experience."
