Diversifying Greek Tragedy on the Contemporary US Stage

Melinda Powers

Classical Presences

  • Utilizes an interdisciplinary approach that draws on both the latest scholarship in the field of performance studies and the 'democratic turn' in classical studies
  • Focuses on underrepresented communities, whose reception of the classics in general and Greek drama in particular remains relatively understudied
  • Discusses contemporary theatrical productions which readers may not otherwise have encountered
  • Richly illustrated to supplement the detailed analysis throughout and help readers visualize the productions discussed
