Canadian Drama and the Critics
Revised Edition
Edited by L. W. Conolly

The editor of this lively, updated assortment of reviews, interviews and other critical deliberations on contemporary Canadian drama has gathered material from books, theatre and scholarly journals; from major daily newspapers in Canada and abroad; from critics, academics, journalists and playwrights. This new expanded and updated edition of Canadian Drama and the Critics now includes commentary on 43 English-language plays written during the last 50 years.

Canadian Drama and the Critics is an enjoyable read that offers an intelligent, wide-ranging overview of modern Canadian plays and playwrights. An ideal companion text to Talonbooks’ Modern Canadian Plays Volumes I and II and other anthologies of Canadian drama, Canadian Drama and the Critics also includes detailed production information for the premiere of each play and a comprehensive index.
