Educational Theatre for Women in Post-World War II Italy: A Stage of Their Own by Daniela Cavallaro Book Summary:
This book explores an important moment in Italian women’s theatre and cultural history: plays written for all-women casts between 1946 and the mid-1960s, authored for the most part by women and performed exclusively by women. Because they featured only female roles, they concentrated on aspects of specifically women’s experience, be it their spirituality, their future lives as wives and mothers, their present lives as workers or students, or their relationships with friends, sisters and mothers. Most often performed in a Catholic environment, they were meant to both entertain and educate, reflecting the specific issues that both performers and spectators had to confront in the years between the end of the war and the beginning of the economic miracle.Drawing on material never before researched, Educational Theatre for Women in Post-World War II Italy: A Stage of Their Own recovers the life and works of forgotten women playwrights while also discussing the role models that educational theatre offered to the young Italian women coming of age in the post-war years.

A Surgeon in Combat European Theatre-World War II, Omaha Beach to Ebensee, 1943-1945 by William V. McDermott Book Summary:
"Bill" McDermott's tale of action as a combat surgeon in World War II is set against the dramatic events of the Allied invasion of Europe and the liberation of the Nazi concentration camp at Ebensee. Dr. McDermott's book originated when he found in his attic, a trunk of letters - scores of them - sent home to his young wife Blanche back in Massachusetts. These letters and observations result in a fast-paced narrative, giving an "on the spot" quality as the story unfolds. The illustrations throughout - some startling snapshotstaken at the time by the author - give an immediacy to the narrative. Maps, an index and a list of sources are included.
OEuvres, II : Le Maitre et Marguerite et autres romans suivi de Theatre [Bibliotheque de la Pleiade] (French Edition) by Mikhail Afanasevich Boulgakov Book Summary:
La Vie de M. de Molière - Mémoires d'un défunt - À ma secrète amie - Le Maître et Marguerite. Théâtre : Les Jours des Tourbine - L'Appartement de Zoïka - L'Île pourpre - La Fuite - Adam et Eva - Béatitude - Alexandre Pouchkine - La Cabale des dévots - Ivan Vassilievitch - Batoum. Appendices : Choix de correspondance - [On était en mai] - Notice autobiographique de 1937.Boulgakov travailla jusqu'à sa mort au Maître et Marguerite. Le roman parut dans la revue Moskva en 1966-1967, amputé d'un bon tiers, pour cause de censure. Il fut néanmoins le grand événement littéraire de la période du «Dégel». Les Russes furent sidérés d'y découvrir une représentation à la fois délirante et plus vraie que nature de la réalité soviétique dans laquelle ils étaient encore plongés, et qu'ils avaient fini par ressentir comme plus ou moins «normale». Ils furent, aussi, incroyablement fiers de ce livre vite reconnu comme un chef-d' uvre, et dont on propose ici une nouvelle traduction - la première depuis plus de trente ans.Les théâtres, les comédies, les coulisses et les plateaux sont présents dans Le Maître et Marguerite comme dans les deux autres romans retraduits pour cette édition : La Vie de M. de Molière et Mémoires d'un défunt (Roman théâtral). Boulgakov était un passionné de théâtre. En partie inédites en français, ses uvres dramatiques - drames, comédies satiriques ou d'anticipation, pièces sur Molière ou sur Pouchkine -, viennent logiquement compléter ce volume. Sans oublier Batoum, pièce de commande sur la jeunesse de Staline, finalement non agréée par la maître du Kremlin. Une fois de plus, Boulgakov avait écrit «pour son tiroir» ; le Choix de correspondance qui clôt le volume révèle les conditions dramatiques dans lesquelles il composa l'une des plus grandes uvres de notre temps.
