About the Book:

Performing Back: Post-Colonial Canadian Plays is a collection of plays that examines topics including race, imperialism, and notions of otherness insofar as they intersect with post-colonial theatre. It aims to generate discussion about the different kinds of theatrical and political output this country is generating, and fills a glaring void in current theatre scholarship in Canada.

This first volume of the Contextualizing Canadian Theatre series includes Yvette Nolan's The Birds, a Native retelling of the Aristophanes play; Camyar Chai, Guillermo Verdecchia, and Marcus Youssef's The Adventures of Ali & Ali and aXes of Evil, a satire of Western neo-colonial forays into Iraq; and Donna-Michelle St. Bernard's Salome's Clothes, a domestic tragedy set in Côte d'Ivoire.
