MEDIA REVIEWS

"Goddard (Royal Holloway, Univ. of London, UK) explores contemporary black British theater through close analyses of work by Kwame Kwei-Armah, debbie tucker green, Roy Williams, and Bola Agbaje. ... Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals; general readers." (T. F. DeFrantz, Choice, Vol. 53 (8), April, 2016)

"Dr Lynette Goddard's excellent book is an important contribution to the study of post-millennial black British theatre, lucidly written and accessible both to scholars and general readers. She explores in detail plays by leading contemporary black dramatists, including Roy Williams, Kwame Kwei-Armah, debbie tucker green and Bola Agbaje. However, the plays are not simply discussed as isolated dramatic texts but also as significant expressions of the current state of Britain as a multiracial society." - Dr D Keith Peacock, Emeritus Research Scholar, University of Hull, UK
