The Cambridge Guide to African and Caribbean Theatre draws on the highly regarded Cambridge Guide to World Theatre (1989), and updates and refocuses material to offer a specific view of traditional and contemporary theater activity in English-, French-, and Portugese-speaking Africa, and the Hispanic and English-speaking Caribbean. This volume traces the ancient and complex roots of African theater--still evident in community festivals and religious rituals--through the centuries of colonial domination, to the African diaspora and its manifestation in Caribbean theater. National essays are followed by alphabetically arranged entries on the major figures in the theatrical arts of that country. Theater buffs and those concerned with African and Caribbean heritage will find much to interest them in this authoritative reference work.
