Replay : classic modern drama reimagined by Toby Silverman Zinman( Book )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Replay: Classic Modern Drama Reimagined spans over a century of great theatre to explore how iconic plays have been adapted and versioned by later writers to reflect or dissect the contemporary zeitgeist. Starting with A Doll's House, Ibsen's much-reprised masterpiece of marital relations from 1879, Toby Zinman explores what made the play so controversial and shocking in its day before tracing how later reimaginings have reworked Ibsen's original. The spine of plays then includes such landmark works as Strindberg's Miss Julie, Oscar Wilde's comic The Importance of Being Earnest, Chekhov's Three Sisters and Uncle Vanya, Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun, the Rattigan centenary revivals, Thornton Wilder's Our Town, ultimately arriving at Beckett's Waiting for Godot. Taking each modern play as the starting point, Zinman explores the diverse renderings and reworkings by subsequent playwrights and artists -including prominent directors and their controversial productions as well as acknowledging reworkings in film, opera and ballet. Through the course of this groundbreaking study we discover not only how theatrical styles have changed but how society's attitude towards politics, religion, money, gender, sexuality and race have radically altered over the course of the century. In turn Replay reveals how theatre can serve as both a reflection of our times and a provocation to them"--
A Student Handbook to the Plays of Arthur Miller : All My Sons, Death of a Salesman, The Crucible, A View From the Bridge, Broken Glass by Susan C. W Abbotson( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Student Handbook to the Plays of Arthur Miller provides the essential guide to Miller's most studied and revived dramas. Authored by a team of leading scholars, it offers students a clear analysis and detailed commentary on five of Miller's plays: All My Sons, Death of a Salesman, The Crucible, A View from the Bridge and Broken Glass. A consistent framework of analysis ensures that whether readers want a summary of the play, a commentary on the themes or characters, or a discussion of the work in performance, they can readily find what they need to develop their understanding and aid their appreciation of Miller's artistry. A chronology of Miller's life and work helps to situate his oeuvre in context and the introduction reinforces this by providing a clear overview of his writing, its recurrent themes and how these are intertwined with his life and times. For each play the author provides a summary of the plot, followed by commentary on the context, themes, characters, structure and language, and the play in production - both on stage and screen adaptations; there are questions for further study and detailed notes on words and phrases in the text. The wealth of authoritative and clear commentary on each play, together with further questions that encourage comparison across Miller's work and related plays by other leading writers, ensures that this is the clearest and fullest guide to Miller's greatest plays

Vietnam War drama 1966-2008: American theatrical responses to the war and its aftermath by Erin Toth Caron( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation examines Vietnam War drama in light of each play's specific historical moment, emphasizing that it is not enough to acknowledge generally the widespread unrest of the Vietnam Era and the effect of that unrest on the creation of drama; rather, careful attention must be paid to the particular sociopolitical issues occurring as the play under examination was written and first performed because those issues influence (and in part are influenced by) the messages and techniques of the playwrights. This dissertation divides the plays by decades: the 1960s, the period of heaviest active combat; the 1970s, the war's end and immediate aftermath; and the 1980s and after, the resurgence of interest in Vietnam. Each of these periods produced plays that engaged with the Vietnam War in ways determined by their historical moment, plays that reflect, initially, the culture's concern with the immediate dangers of the war; later, the damage done to the country's self-image and reputation in the world; and finally, the difficulties experienced by returning veterans and their families. This project engages the arguments of the three key critical works dealing with Vietnam War drama: Nora M. Alter's Vietnam Protest Theatre: The Television War Onstage, J. W. Fenn's Levitating the Pentagon: Evolutions in the American Theatre of the Vietnam War Era, and Toby Silverman Zinman's Search and Destroy: The Drama of the Vietnam War. Specific attention is paid to the issue of genre and to the relevance of Vietnam War drama in the post-Vietnam War era
