Popular Performance Plays of Canada


This volume introduces a new illustrated series of Canadian plays – plays which have had outstanding success in their regions, and which are now being made available for reading, study, or production throughout Canada.

The plays included in this volume were selected from forty-eight scripts which were considered. We are proud of the range of theatrical style which they represent, and of the success each has achieved in original production by such diverse theatres as Montreal International Theatre, Peterborough Theatre Guild, Redlight Theatre (Toronto), Theatre London (Grand Theatre and National Arts Centre) and Alberta Theatre Projects (Calgary).

Whether you are reading the plays for general interest, for study, or with an eye to future production, we hope you will share our enthusiasm for the ever-improving quality of Canadian playwriting.
