The result is a text packed with practical information you can use in everyday life, including insight on censorship, freedom of speech, copyrights, the National Endowment for the Arts, and more.

Life Themes 2nd Edition

LIFE THEMES is a drama anthology that provides complete scripts for the 12 plays discussed in PLAYS FOR THE THEATRE's Dramatic Interlude sections. The anthology mirrors the Interludes with six themes: love, war, generations, rebellion, dreams, and values. Each theme is represented by both a classical and a contemporary play. While the first play is usually by a white male from a previous century, the second modern script is from women, Asian-American, Latino, and African-American writers. For each play, the editors provide historical context, a biography about the playwright, an examination of contemporary relevance of the script, a discussion of other works by the playwright, and suggestions for further study. From the authors, Robert Barton and Annie McGregor: "We hope these 12 plays will not only introduce readers to the breadth, depth, and scope of theatre, but will also engage their minds, emotions, and empathy for a huge spectrum of humanity outside their own experience."
