Wendy Wasserstein (1950-2006) wrote topical, often funny plays addressing relationships among women and their families, taking the temperature of social moments from the 1960s onward to debate women's rightful places in their professional and personal lives. Her popular plays (including the Pulitzer-prizewinning The Heidi Chronicles) continue to be produced on Broadway and in regional theaters around the country and the world. Wasserstein's emergence as a playwright paralleled the growth of the second-wave feminist movement in the United States, a cultural context reflected in her plays' themes. Yet while her comedies and dramas were successful, packing theaters and winning awards, feminist critics often felt that the plays did not go far enough to promote full social equality. Wendy Wasserstein provides a critical introduction and feminist reappraisal of the significant plays of this exceptional American playwright, as interpreted by renowned theater scholar Jill Dolan. The book begins with an illuminating biographical introduction followed by chapters that address each of Wasserstein's important plays, situating the work in the history of the U.S. feminist movement and in an historical moment in which women artists continue to struggle for recognition. -- from back cover.
