dc.description.abstractThis thesis uses various theories of deviant behavior and masking to analyze twentieth-century plays and films which depict masked deviants. It takes the stance that deviance in a narrative can be either punished/resolved or unpunished/unresolved and asks what each of these narrative dramaturgies might say about the hegemonic structures in the societies that bred them. This thesis then moves on to construct a theory for a new subgroup of social activist masked deviant theatre
