Her book incorporates postcolonial and feminist readings of Lochheads and Moragas plays while it also explores different mythologies on the background. Bilgin Tekin not only introduces an original point of view on Liz Lochheads and Cherrie Moragas plays as adaptations or rewrites, but also calls attention to the non-canonized Scottish, Aztec, and Mayan mythologies.

Following an innovative approach, she discusses the question in which ways Lochheads and Moragas adaptations of myths are challenges to the canon and further suggests a feminist version of Augusto Boals Theatre of the Oppressed.The study appeals to readers of mythology, drama, and comparative literature.

Those interested in postcolonial and feminist theories will also gain valuable new insights.
