Editorial Reviews


This is the first anthology devoted to a cross-section of ethnic women playwrights: it provides many diverse voices and theatrical approaches and proves both intellectually and culturally satisfying.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Jewel Sophia Younge on September 13, 2006
Format: Paperback
Admittedly, I am biased towards this book because I was an intern for Roberta Uno's New Works for a New World some years ago. This review is, however, based on my students's evaluation of the book. I teach in an urban setting. Students of color--black and hispanic--comprise the bulk of our population. I ordered the book anticipating a class of 20 or so black and hispanic women. I found myself teaching a class of 10 black men. They loved each play. Their favorite, by far, was The Queen's Garden. Do not be afraid to assign this book to any group of students. The work is so exciting that any theater lover, woman or man, young or old, of color or other, can find a lot to enjoy.
