Sung, Eun-Joo. Feminist Theatre Strategies to Deconstruct Womens Representation in The Singular Life of Albert Nobbs. Studies in English Language & Literature 46.3 (2020): 129-150. This study focuses on the strategies of feminist theatre that dismantle traditional female representation. Historically, culture invented its own fictional women, while suppressing them in reality. Gender has been considered fixed, essential, and bipolar. However, in the 1970s, new feminist plays focused more clearly on the ideological character of theatrical representations of women. As shown in The Singular Life of Albert Nobbs, Simone Benmusa reveals historical and social conditions that reflect the male-dominant social phenomena. In addition, history is reproduced as a narrative text, not as a background or setting in the play. George Moores viewpoint describing Alberts life shows that women have never existed as autonomous subjects in history. In the play, the reaction of the audience is represented by offstage voices which enables them to maintain critical perspectives although it prevents them from being immersed in the play. Furthermore, the cross-dressing reveals that gender is not an innate and natural essence, but a representation formed by society. Through dismantling the traditional representations of women, the play asks the audience what women truly are. To conclude, this phase is a vital step to expand the scope of women's social influence and to actualize more accurate representation of women. (Chungnam National University)
