Creating a Profession: Disparate Voices of Indian Women Playwrights is a collection of plays demonstrating a broad variety of contemporary perspectives as told through the eyes of the women who created them. The anthology is enhanced by significant interviews between each writer and the editor and an introduction filled with information about the profession of playwriting throughout India. Details include the challenges of multiple languages throughout the country, the lack of funding and rehearsal spaces, the role of censorship, the need for specific training, and the influence of gender upon these writer's ability to find what one woman called "brain space" given the continuation of traditional gender expectations.
Shirley Huston-Findley is professor of theater at The College of Wooster.
