Gilbert H., Tompkins J. Post-colonial Drama: Theory, practice, politics
London, New York: Routledge. — 1996. — 356 p. ISBN-10: 0415090245; ISBN-13: 978-0415090247.
Post-Colonial Drama is the first full-length study to address the ways in which performance has been instrumental in resisting the continuing effects of imperialism. It brings to bear the latest theoretical approaches from post-colonial and performance studies to a range of plays from Australia, Africa, Canada, New Zealand, the Caribbean and other former colonial regions. Some of the major topics discussed in Post-Colonial Drama include:
the interactions of post-colonial and performance theories; the post-colonial re-stagings of language and history; the specific enactments of ritual and carnival; the theatrical citations of the post-colonial body. The book combines a rich intersection of theoretical approaches with close attention to a wide range of performance texts.
