New American Theater

Paperback / softback
This issue of Theater brings together a collection of new theater that, while dealing with a wide range of topics, is united by a commitment to inventiveness and intellectual integrity. One piece included here addresses the challenges faced by Chilean artists working under the shadow of Pinochet; another explores a model Truth and Reconciliation Commission put together by the Arab-Hebrew Theater of Java. From there the issue moves to New York's experimental theater and includes a dialogue held at the Brooklyn Academy of Music on the future of the genre. A scholar's forum considers the meaning of activist and experimental theater, and the issue is rounded out with a series of reviews of current productions.
