ABSTRACT
An essay from the book "Essays on Twentieth-Century German Drama and Theater: An American Reception 1977-1999" is presented. It examines the portrayal of racist, sexist and nationalist attitudes in several contemporary plays written in the German language by female playwrights. The majority of the plays portray foreigners as speechless victims, who fail to express their thoughts. The playwrights did not attempt to give a depiction of lives of the foreigners in Austria and Germany. The plays failed to represent people from different races and cultural background who grow up as a German or Austrian.
