This anthology contains nine emblematic scripts from twentieth and twenty-first century Asian theatre

The chronological and geographical breadth of the Anthology provides a unique insight into modern Asian theatre and is essential to any understanding of its relation to Western drama and indigenous performance

It opens with a history of modern Asian drama and a summary of the plays and their contexts, featuring works written between 1912 and 2009 in Japan, China, Korea, India, Indonesia and Vietnam

Showcasing fresh contemporary writing alongside plays central to the established canon, the collection also offers a survey of each playwright's work
