A Play of One's Own: The Plays and Writings of Barbara Bejoian
By Barbara Bejoian, Edited by Robert D. Bejoian, Foreword by George Bournoutian, Introduction by Alysia Reiner
Bejoian's ten plays have appeared in Boston, Philadelphia, Providence, New York, Fort Lauderdale, London, Edinburgh, and Yerevan. She is best known for her Armenian plays, Dance Mama, Dance; Eagles Without Wings ... Horses without Legs, and her piece on Virginia Woolf entitled A Play of One's Own.
Commissioned by the artistic director, George Houston Bass, Barbara Bejoian became the first Caucasian woman to write and produce three Armenian-American plays for Brown University's Rites and Reason Company. The third production Dance Mama, Dance, in 1989 was under a Rockefeller Grant. A 1995 Fulbright Scholar, a 1994 Critics Choice Award Winner at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Bejoian had also been awarded ten National Endowment for the Arts Artist-in-Residencies for playwriting, the Rhode Island Feminist Theater Premier Award, and the Massachusetts Artist Foundation Finalist Award.
