Born in the late 19th century, Indonesian popular theater addressed the mass urban audience. This new theater was fast paced; some plays were escapist, others nationalistic. This volume presents the diverse genres that make up that theater: Middle Eastern influenced komedi stambul; Chinese-Indonesian “charity operas,” realist social drama, nationalist drama, and Jakarta folk theater.
