Great Scenes from Minority Playwrights

Seventy-four scenes of cultural diversity
Edited By Marsh Cassady

Age Level: All Ages

Scenes from plays by minority playwrights designed to make students aware of cultural diversity in American theatre. Providing a stepping stone to the study of minority writing, this drama book presents scenes for acting and directing practice. Instead of isolated cuttings from a large number of plays, a number of scenes from single plays are included. Students get a more comprehensive view of each drama, as well as a better feeling for the playwright’s style and message. Each is preceded by background information and discussion/analysis to help develop characterizations. Each play, playwright, and minority category is examined in historical and cultural perspective.
