Vital Voices brings together work by modern and contemporary American women playwrights and performance artists. The artists represented include Djuna Barnes, Jane Bowles, Maria Irene Fornes, Susan Glaspell, Holly Hughes, Adrienne Kennedy, Wendy Kesselman, Marsha Norman, Suzan-Lori Parks, Joan Schenkar, Ntozake Shange, Gertrude Stein, and Megan Terry, each an influential figure whose work has challenged the status quo of American drama in significant and indelible ways. In innovative, sometimes radical departures, from realism and the work of their male contemporaries (e.g., O'Neill, Miller, Shepard, Mamet) these writers provide distinctly different forms, language, imagery and angles of vision in their attempts to depict personal, familial, and societal views of America and the world.Chronologically arranged, each play or performance piece is introduced by a brief biographical and critical essay that helps situate the work for both students and general readers. For those wishing to explore the plays in depth or to read other works by the playwrights, there is an extensive bibliography.
