Celebrating Mark Twain's little-known (and long-suppressed) gender-bending feminist fiction, this play brings three of his controversial short stories to the stage! The action revolves around Twain's "1002nd Arabian Night" (1883). Envisioning Scherezade and King Shahiyar the next day, Twain explores what happens when a boy is raised as a girl, and a girl is raised as a boy! Scherezade also narrates two other Twain yarns - "Wapping Alice" (1898) and "How Nancy Jackson Married Kate Wilson" (1902), which deal with the taboo topic of same-sex unions. Disguised as comedies, these three one-act plays reveal Twain's closeted past as a radical feminist theorist, destabilizing biological categories by suggesting that gender is a performance.
A Midsummer Night's Dream is a comedy play by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written between 1590 and 1596. It portrays the events surrounding the marriage of the Duke of Athens, Theseus, and Hippolyta. These include the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of six amateur actors (mechanical), who are controlled and manipulated by the fairies who inhabit the forest in which most of the play is set. The play is one of Shakespeare's most popular works for the stage and is widely performed across the world.
The South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) is a modern social drama that enabled the nation's apartheid past to be constructed as a cultural trauma, and by doing so created a new collective narrative of diversity and inclusion. The TRC relied primarily on testimonies from victims and perpetrators of apartheid violence who came forward to tell their stories in a public forum. Rather than simply serving as data for setting the historical record straight, this book shows that it was not only the content of these testimonies but also how these stories were told and what values were attached to them that became significant. Goodman argues that the performative nature of the TRC process effectively designated the past as profane and simultaneously imagined a sacred future community based on democratic idealism and universal solidarity.
