The popular stages of urban Indonesia offer windows on inter-ethnic cultural obsessions and signs of participation in global trends. This volume brings together representative plays from the 1890s until the 1960s. It includes examples of the diverse genres that make up Indonesian popular theater: komedi stambul, opera derma, tonil, sandiwara and lenong.
