Re-visioning classic drama, often in a subversive mode, has evolved into its own theatrical genre in recent years, and many of these productions have been informed by feminist theory and practice. This book examines recent feminist adaptations (produced since 1980) of classic works. Essays are arranged according to the period and genre of the source text re-visioned: classical theater and myth (e.g., ""Metamorphoses"", ""Antigone""), Shakespeare and seventeenth century theater (e.g., ""King Lear""), nineteenth and twentieth century narratives (e.g., ""The Scarlet Letter"", ""Jane Eyre""), and modern drama (e.g., ""A Streetcar Named Desire"", ""A Doll's House"").
