    Contemporary Plays by African Women when I read this title I knew I needed this book I got it right early this year when the book was published but it took me almost the entire year to read through all plays Which was not the fault of the book thoughThis book includes seven plays by writers from seven different countries Egypt Cameroon Kenya Uganda Zimbabwe Nigeria and South Africa Each play is surfaced by information about the author but also the development and context of the play I really enjoyed reading these before delving into the plays themselves All of these plays are not only written by women but they also focus on women's experiences and life realities The writers share this focus but they focus on different topics and themes and the tone and writing differ widely This makes this a very powerful anthology Of course as with most anthologies there are some plays I preferred over others but I was glad to have read all of them
