Queer mythologies; the original stageplays of Pam Gems.

Godiwala, Dimple.

Intellect, Ltd.

A scholar of cultural, feminist, dramatic, and postcolonial theory, Godiwala introduce the work of 20th-century British dramatist Gems, whom she finds to be cannily on the pulse of the cultural moment. She describes plays in sections on her beginnings in the early 1970s, white women's mythologies, masculinities in crisis among straight and gay men, and creating a space for the racialized Other. There is no index. Distributed in the US by ISBS.
