"Feminist Theatre Practice" is a practical guide to theatre-making which explores the different ways of representing or "seeing" gender. Designed to take the reader through the various stages of making feminist theatre--from warming up, through workshopped exploration, to performance--this volume is grouped into three clear and instructive parts: Women in the Workshop; Dramatic Texts, Feminist Contexts; and Gender and Devising Projects. "A Handbook of Feminist Theatre Practice" encompasses the main elements of feminist theatre, whether practical or theoretical, covers topics such as the body, feminist working practices, the canon and feminist aesthetics.
