Modern Canadian Plays is the core text for university-level Canadian drama courses around the world.
Now in its fifth edition, the two-volume Modern Canadian Plays drama series anthologizes major Canadian plays written and performed since 1967. Volume two presents Canadian plays written over the past twenty-five years. These plays respond directly or indirectly to the events of our time; work effectively on the stage, on the page, and in the classroom; and are contextualized with accompanying history, biography, and criticism--all in one place for a reasonable price!
