About the Book:

Refractions: Scenes is a collection of scenes from diverse contemporary works by Canadian playwrights that reflect the country's artistic landscape through a breadth of themes, styles, regions, and creative practices.

Refractions: Scenes is the hotly anticipated follow-up to Refractions: Solo, a collection of monologues also edited by Donna-Michelle St. Bernard and Yvette Nolan. This collection can be used both as a scene source for actors and students, or as a primer on diverse Canadian theatre and an entry point into new works, many of which are not yet widely available.

The works are about ten minutes in length each, containing 3-7 characters.
