It may be said that drama, by its very nature of staged reality, possesses the quality of self-consciousness that film, theorized to be constructed in imitation of the white western patriarchal unconscious or, elsewhere, a fantasy dream screen that masochistically pleasures the white middle-class woman and gratifies and reassures white man , does not.

Summary This book on Gems has a thesis or a 'backbone' which elicits the title 'Queer Mythologies'. The opening chapter affords some all too tantalizingly brief insights into early work by Gems and some helpful biographical sketches for the student reader who is not familiar with the playwright and the profile of her theatre. Her characters are metaphors for contemporary women and men and she often herstoricizes, thus righting the balance of dramatic history by creating parts for women in British drama. And thirdly, by making her characters metaphors for the shifting and contradictory identities of contemporary women in destroying the psychoanalytic notion of woman as eternal and unchanging. In particular, more attention might be paid to the theatrical and feminist contexts and generations that Gems's theatre spans.

Her dramaturgy brings to the mainstream theatre the identities and subcultures of class, race, ethnicity, gender and sexuality making her plays queer mythologies. She is a popular playwright produced often at the West End and has a widespread appeal by being on the pulse of cultural iconology. These are the queer mythologies which severally contest the white patriarchal traditions of British drama, carving out, for Gems, an authorial identity which, overspilling the gendered space that the twentieth-century British feminist dramatists locate themselves in, becomes subsumed in the queer ex-centric spaces of minoritarian identities and sub-cultures. Which does not go uncontested. A third chapter moves on to an interesting examination of a selection of plays theorized through and focused on Gems's attentions to masculinities, both queer and straight.

Abstract: Pam Gems is a popular playwright produced often at the West End and has a widespread appeal by being on the pulse of cultural iconology. Her characters are metaphors for contemporary women and men and she often herstoricizes, thus righting the balance of dramatic history by creating parts for women in British drama.

This book on Gems has a thesis or a 'backbone' which elicits the title Queer Mythologies.
