I teach courses in drama and theater at the undergraduate and graduate level. Previously a member of the now-nonexistent Department of Theater, I directed a number of plays at the Foley Theater at St. Thomas, including the musical version of Shakespeare’s The Two Gentlemen of Verona, the classic comedy Servant of Two Masters, and serious dramas such as “Voices of Women from the Abrahamic Faiths” and The Laramie Project. I have written and edited several books, including Political Theatre in Post-Thatcher Britain (Palgrave, 2008), Plays by Early American Women, 1775-1850 (University of Michigan Press, 1995), and The Plays of Caryl Churchill: Theatre of Empowerment (Macmillan, London, and St. Martin's Press, 1991). I have published numerous essays and presented many papers on the work of Caryl Churchill, various aspects of contemporary British drama, and issues in early American drama and theater. With Miriam López Rodríguez, I am currently compiling a volume of essays to be titled “Woman on Trial: Gender Construction in Plays about Accused Women.”
