Notes

Abstract: This three part thesis considers the theoretical ideas both that motherhood is a compulsion and that society posits motherhood as an important indicator to the success of being a woman. Through the theatrical script I hope to provoke a dialogue not only about the truths of these assertions, but also about the importance of theatre as a tool for social progress. The fIrst chapter examines these questions with regard to Caryl Churchill's play, Cloud Nine; the second chapter is my own play, Our Little Deaths, and the last chapter is a dramaturgical discussion of the how the play in performance articulates these important issues of motherhood to the individual and collective audience. This thesis pairs feminist theatre criticism with a feminist dramatic text; by combining the critical and the creative I explore how theatre can and must reconceive its audience and the narratives it privileges in order to survive. Within Our Little Deaths I highlight culturally fragmented and marginalized perspectives; it is my desire that the play allow for a kind of practical blue print for revolutionizing contemporary feminist theatre.
