Approaching narrative from a transgeneric perspective, this article provides a thorough narratological analysis of two of Paula Vogel's most experimental plays. Its hypothesis is that such an analysis can offer a better understanding of those plays as well as demonstrate how Vogel first evokes narrative dimensions on stage, to then exploit or even completely overturn them. In the first chapter, the relation between narrativity and drama is investigated alongside some of the key concepts that will be used in chapters two and three, each of which will concentrate on experiments with “mimetic” and “dramatic narrativity” in one of the plays.
