Abstract
In this dissertation, I read Judith Thompson’s The Crackwalker, I am Yours, Habitat, and Lion in the Streets with an eye towards how Thompson produces socially contingent spaces as sites of marginalized identity. My focus is on Thompson’s work as a playwright rather than on the texts in performance. My interest is in the ways Thompson mediates a characterization of class-based marginality through the experience of space as a social product. In interrogating Thompson’s use of space, I refer to the theories of philosopher Henri Lefebvre, specifically to the notion of space as a social product and his conception of the “double illusion.”
