Opis: American Playwriting and the Anti-Political Prejudice - Nelson Pressley

Twenty years after Tony Kushner's influential Angels in America seemed to declare a revitalized potency for the popular political play, there is a "No Politics" prejudice undermining US theatre production and writing. The prejudice contributes to a crisis of political representation that can be seen in close readings of recent works by America's foremost dramatists, including David Mamet, Sam Shepard, Arthur Miller, and Wendy Wasserstein. This book explores the largely unrecognized cultural patterns that discourage political playwriting on the contemporary American stage. "American Playwriting and the Anti-Political Prejudice addresses a timely, even urgent question: what has happened to the tradition of socially engaged playwriting in the United States since its two high-water marks in the twentieth century? Something has changed - perhaps irrevocably - in the way our culture makes room for political debate on its stages, in the way playwrights theatricalize political life, embody committed thought and action, and measure the space between utopian ideals and harsher realities." - Marc Robinson, author of The American Play: 1787-2000Introduction. No Politics, Please, We're American 1. "Politics" 2. The Case of Kushner 3. Reception and the Anti-Political Prejudice in America 4. State of the Nation: UK and US 5. American Shenanigans 6. Wendy Wasserstein's Washington 7. Erasing the Playwright Conclusion
