About this item

This study analyzes theater in three former Eastern Bloc countries. It demonstrates how theater of the period avoided censorship to criticize politics and totalitarianism through the use of irony, experimental theater, theater of the absurd, and staging classic plays with modern twists. Material is in sections on the Russian and French masters, Shakespeare in Central and Eastern Europe, and inserting god into politics. Writers and directors discussed include Vlad Zografi, Nedyalko Yordanov, and Nic Ularu. Other topics include adapting Moli<’e>re and Jules Verne to Soviet censorship, and reading Bulgaria’s communist political culture through Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Distributed by Books International.
