When the Cultural Cringe Abated : Australian Drama in the 1970s, Julian Meyrick , single work essay

'If Australian drama came of age in the 1940s and 1950s, in the 1970s it reached full maturity. More work by more playwrights by more companies for larger audiences: this is the basic narrative of the period. The AusStage database indicates that between 1970 and 1979, local productions of Australian plays more than doubled. And if the standard of that drama could be variable, there is no doubting the craft, intelligence and audacity of its peak achievements.' (Introduction)

The House of Bernada Alba Is an Extraordinary Portrait of Imposed Silence and Female Misogyny, Ana Puchau de Lecea , single work review

'Could a Spanish rural drama written in the 1930s still be relevant in 2018 Australia? In their production of Federico García Lorca’s The House of Bernarda Alba, director Leticia Cáceres and playwright Patricia Cornelius show us that it can.'  (Introduction)
