George Rideout was raised in Texas and moved to Canada in his teens. He now teaches theatre at Bishop’s University in Lennoxville, Quebec, where the annual New Plays Festival presents one-act plays written in his playwriting class. His own work as a playwright is more widely celebrated, winning numerous regional and national playwriting
awards. His plays often reflect on cross-cultural relationships, particularly as they exist in times of great social change. They include Texas Boy (which has had more than thirty different productions), The Longstreth Line, Walking on the Moon, 689 Spadina Ave., The Austin Texas Twist Championship, The Tall Girl_, and An Anglophone Is Coming to Dinner.
