Women have struggled to be heard in the world of modern African theatre. Traditionally they had secure roles as dancers, singers and storytellers, but as theatre became professionalised and commercialised, control increasingly lay with the literate elites. This volume is testimony to the scope of their work as playwrights, musicians and actors from the Algerian diaspora to the new South Africa. Guest edited by JANE PLASTOW North America: Indiana U Press; South Africa: Wits U Press
