Rachel Crothers had a fascinating and influential career as a woman playwright and director. She was a major part of Broadway history during the first half of the 20th century, when she wrote for leading actresses such as Tallulah Bankhead, Katharine Cornell, and Gertrude Lawrence. While she is primarily known for her plays, she also worked for a time in Hollywood, and many of her plays were filmed-some more than once. This volume presents a biographical and critical overview of Crothers's life and career, along with synopses of her plays, descriptions of the critics' responses to each play, and substantial primary and secondary bibliographies. This book makes suggestions about the criticism that Crothers's work has elicited in the past, as well as about the directions that criticism might and should take in the future. Because of Crothers's work on Broadway, the book is a valuable guide to theater history throughout the 1900s, particularly because of the detailed cast and production information provided in the entries.
