Libman, Karen
Youth Theatre Journal, v12 p48-59 1998
Examines three contemporary plays for young audiences that feature adolescent female protagonists to examine the treatment of adolescent girls'"coming of age" issues regarding sexuality, body, and identity. Finds that all three protagonists grapple with self-consciousness and cultural norms regarding beauty and explore their struggles regarding their developing bodies. Notes that all plays end on deliberately positive notes. (SR)
