The use of Greek tragedy as a model by African theater artists has been a growing trend since the early 1960s. In this study, Wetmore (theater, Denison U.) considers how modern African playwrights have adapted classical Greek tragedy. Wetmore begins with a discussion of the cultural similarities between ancient Athens and colonial Africa. Later chapters examine plays such as Efua Sutherland's Edufa, Orestes and Sylvain Bemba's Black Wedding Candles for Blessed Antigone . Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
