This volume brings together a number of studies of theatre made and performed by young Africans to audiences across the continent. It shows a wide range of work, much of which depicts the crises that young people in Africa face as they enter the world of adult relationships and compromises. The contributions, by adults who are deeply involved with this theatre, recount the inspiration and enthusiasm that has led to the artistic achievement and powerful creativity of the work. Michael Etherton's introduction analyses its artistic scope and political impact. What emerges from the voices of the young people themselves is how they are using theatre and performance to struggle for their rights and for positive changes in their lives.
