Bibliographic note

Published in the series Cambridge Studies in Modern Theatre, Feminist Views was originally conceived as a project in 'feminist recovery'. It sets out to challenge the 'post-feminist', backlash legacy of the 1980s and argues a need to take issue with the 'renaissance' of angry young men on the British stage in the 1990s. To that end the monograph engages in a critical analysis of feminist directions in and about work by contemporary women playwrights writing for the English stage. Draft chapters were presented by invitation to 'In-Yer-Face Theatre: British Drama in the 1990s Conference' (UWE, Bristol, September 2002 - Churchill Chapter) and King's College/RADA, (London, 2002 ' Kane Chapter), while an early draft on Wertenbaker's theatre was presented at the Leicester/Pisa Colloquium, 'Collaboration' Leicester University (September 2001). The writing and completion of Feminist Views was made possible through an AHRC grant (Research Leave Scheme). The book's chapter detailing the work of Rebecca Prichard, was influential in bringing Aston and Prichard together in a research context, now consolidated by the appointment of Prichard as AHRC-funded Creative and Performing Arts Fellow, from September 2007.
