About the Authors
  • The Cambridge Guide to African and Caribbean Theatre is an exploration of the rich diversity of theatrical traditions in sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean. Beautifully illustrated throughout, the book traces the ancient and complex roots of African theatre - still evident in community festivals and religious rituals - through the centuries of colonial domination, to the African diaspora and its manifestation in Caribbean theatre. Drawing upon the parent Cambridge Guide to Theatre, material is updated and refocused to offer a specific view of traditional and contemporary theatre activity in over 40 countries. National essays are followed by alphabetically arranged entries on the major figures in the theatrical arts of that country, whilst additional entries concentrate on specific aspects of theatre, from rituals and festivals to theatre companies and language.

    • Only guide to both African and Caribbean theatre available
    • All-embracing coverage of countries, playwrights, theatre movements, and general entries such as festivals, ritual and language
    • Vibrant redefinition of established theatrical categories

    Reviews & endorsements

    'The Cambridge Guide to African and Caribbean Theatre provides a very necessary literary map which helps a reader to place the works in context and importance, which is an asset for a guide … a very good read and … laid out to provide easy reference with items of special interest and further reading material physically highlighted on the pages. The book will therefore satisfy the curious and the general reader as much as it will the student and the scholarly researcher.' A. Creighton, University of Guyana
