A new subject guide has just been created to celebrate Women's History Month (March): 10 Centuries of Plays by Women .
Based on a 2015 article by Susan Jonas in American Theatre, the guide covers 60 plays from the late 10th. Century through the end of the 20th. The list includes plays that are often a reflection of the playwright's times. Included in the list are well known plays like A Raisin in the Sun (1959) by Lorraine Hansberry to newly rediscovered plays like Rachel Crothers' A Man's World (1909). The earliest plays are by Hrotsvitha, a Benedictine nun of the late 10th. Century and the last play, published in 1999, is And What of the Night? by Maria Irene Fornes. The guide provides links for biographical information plus information concerning plays of the 19th. and 20th. Century.
The 10 Centuries of Plays by Women guide is located under the Subject Guides tab located in the upper central portion of the Auburn University Libraries homepage . Next, click on the All Guides link and then click on the 10 Centuries of Plays by Women link.
