About the Book:

Canadian Drama and the Critics by L. V. Conolly is an enjoyable read that offers an intelligent, wide-ranging overview of modern Canadian plays and playwrights.

As the editor of this lively, updated assortment of reviews, interviews and other critical deliberations on contemporary Canadian drama, L. V. Conolly 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 forty-three English-language plays written during the last fifty years.

Canadian Drama and the Critics is an ideal companion text to 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.
