Theatre and Sexuality (2010)
Why is it useful to look at theatre and performance through the lens of sexual identity? How has commercial theatre embraced gay and lesbian work? Theatre and Sexuality introduces critical methods and artistic practices that link drama, theatre and performance with minority sexualities in both the U.S. and UK. It narrates a select history of LGBTQ theatre from the early 20th century through today. Including an extended reading of Split Britches/Bloolips’ production Belle Reprieve, the book offers clear analysis, as well as a celebration, of LGBTQ performance.
