Staging Nation examines the complex relationship between the theatrical stage and the wider stage of nation building in postcolonial Malaysia and Singapore. In less than fifty years, locallywritten and produced English language theatre has managed to shrug offits colonial shackles to become an important site of community expression. This comparative study discusses the role of creative writing and the act of performance as actual political acts and as interventions in national self-constructions.'--BOOK JACKET.
