Rethinking the Female Adolescent Protagonist in Charlotte Chorpenning's "Cinderella" and Suzan Zeder's "Mother Hicks."
Applebaum, Susan Rae
Youth Theatre Journal, v12 p36-47 1998
Examines C. Chorpenning's 1940 children's play and compares it with S. Zeder's 1983 children's play. Reveals how the plays are deeply embedded in dominant cultural attitudes of their time and in historically situated models of female adolescence and yet are resistant to these same narratives. Discusses how they have contributed, positively and negatively, to the socialization of their audience. (SR)
