about this item

Black British Theatre: A Transnational Story looks afresh at the ways black theatre in Britain is connected to and informed by the spaces of Africa, the Carribean, and the USA.

Offering a new, transnational approach to reading black British theatre from 1950 onwards, Michael Pearce examines UK productions of work by writers including Lorraine Hansberry, August Wilson, and James Baldwin, as well as plays by Kwame Kwei-Armah, Roy Williams, Mojisola Adebayo and Bola Agbaje. Each chapter combines historical documentation and discussion with close textual and performance analysis, providing an in-depth, absorbing account of postwar black British theatre.

A significant contribution to black diaspora theatre studies, Black British Theatre is a must-read for students and scholars in this evolving field.
