Abstract or Description

This bi-lingual article considers the distinctive aesthetic of debbie tucker green's dramatic-poetics with attention to her first play and other early work as a means of tracing the development of her theatre signature. It foregrounds the minimalist dynamic (but epic topics) she shares with Dona Daley, her exact contemporary on the Royal Court Theatre new writers programme.

Resumo
No novo milênio, em que homens brancos ainda dominam o terreno teatral, o teatro de mulheres britânicas negras permanece, na melhor das hipóteses, raro. debbie tucker green e Dona Daley dramatizam distintivamente articulações do experimentalismo não-característico no teatro britânico. Elas produzem experimentações sustentadas em forma, estilo e assunto para exercer a experiência negra como universal, e não marginal. Enquanto Daley emprega um naturalismo não qualificado na sua dramatização das intimidades mundanas que nós vivemos juntos, tucker green ataca as zonas de conforto do realismo teatral através de linguística em queda-livre e tópicos tabus. Elas exemplificam articulações de sensibilidades e perspectivas das mulheres dramaturgas como se surgissem de posições de dentro da cultura e do teatro que são distintas daquelas dos seus contemporâneos masculinos.

Abstract
In the new millennium where white men still dominate the theatrical terrain, the staging of Black British women’s drama remains at best, rare. debbie tucker green and Dona Daley distinctively dramatize articulations of the experientially uncharacteristic in British theatre. They produce sustained experimentation with form, style and subject matter in asserting black experience as universal not marginal. Whilst Daley employs unqualified naturalism in her dramatization of the mundane intimacies that weave lives together, tucker green blitzes the comfort zones of theatrical realism through linguistic free-fall and taboo topics. They exemplify women dramatists’ articulations of sensibilities and perspectives as arising from positions within culture and theatre that are distinct from those of their male contemporaries.
