Feminist Dramatic Criticism for Theatre for Young Audiences.
Bloom, Davida
Youth Theatre Journal, v12 p25-35 1998
Applies feminist dramatic criticism to the texts of 18 plays produced in the 1994-1995 season by three preeminent Theatre for Young Audiences companies. Finds a high proportion of characters who do not display typical gender-role stereotyping, but finds that most female characters are objects of adult exchange who rarely have power. Discusses four options for producers when facing stereotypes. (SR)
