Caryl Churchill is the foremost contemporary woman playwright of U.K. Since 1960. She has given a distinct identity to feminist drama. This book is an indepth study of her major stage-plays with special reference to gender consciousness. In particular, the book aims at a critical analysis of her distinctive techniques of role reversals, research and collaborative process of dramatic production, linguistic idiom for feminine expression, the cross casting and the songs.
Churchill’s greatest achievement has been the presentation of the difference between gender and sexuality and also the theatrical expression of sexuality and the relationship of power with gender. This is a ‘must read book’ for all those interested in British
Feminist Theatre.
