2004 – “Dead White Males” by David Williamson

Posted on: June 18, 2004

In this play, first performed in Sydney in 1995, the contemporary Australian playwright David Williamson questions postmodernist, feminist literary theories trying to deconstruct Shakespeare’s position as the unquestionable doyen of world literature, written by white European Anglo-celtic males. Both at university and in the setting of the Judd family home Williamson’s characters and Shakespeare himself reflect on whether the Bard can still tell us basic truths about human nature and if his plays are politically correct.
