Here are three contemporary cutting-edge plays from a country notable for extending the boundaries of theater for young audiences. The riches of this volume include an overview of the theater scene in the Netherlands, interviews with the authors, production photographs, and accounts of productions of the plays in their home theaters and in the U.S. This book is an invaluable resource for students and scholars in theater and the practice of theater for young audiences and a challenge to American theaters and directors looking for material that breaks new ground.
