Women in American Theatre
Noted educator and theatre historian Helen Krich Chinoy (1922-2010) and her co-author Linda Walsh Jenkins’s groundbreaking study of the history and influence on women in the American theatre was first published by Crown Books in 1981. This vital work brought to the forefront important founders of the American theatre movement such as Susan Glaspell, Cheryl Crawford and many others whose stories had been neglected over the years. TCG published the second and third editions of this collection of interviews and essays that explores the complete spectrum of women’s contributions to the field and acts as a standard textbook in university curriculum.
