Great Scenes from Minority Playwrights
Seventy-four scenes of cultural diversity

Edited by Marsh Cassady


Cover of
These seventy-four scenes are compiled from plays by minority playwrights, each designed to teach students about cultural diversity.  The book presents scenes for acting and directing practice as a stepping stone to the study of minority writing.  Instead of isolated cuttings from a large number of plays, several scenes from single plays are included allowing for a more comprehensive view of the playwright’s style and message.  Scenes range from less than two minutes to ten or more minutes, and each is preceded by background information and discussion/analysis to help develop characterizations.  Each play, playwright, and minority category are examined from a historical and cultural perspective.
