About the Plays:

HARD TO FIND BOOK, only a very limited number of copies are still available.

Where is Here? is the first volume of two anthologies that are the result of a proposal call issued by CBC Radio's Sunday Showcase for plays dealing with an immigration theme.

Volume I contains six plays:
Raj Kumari's Lullaby, by Rishma Dunlop, a play set in British Columbia and Québec's Eastern Townships, that charts a Punjabi-Canadian woman's coming of age;
Crossing Gibraltar, by Ehab Lotayef, a fascinating look at the life a man has lived by immigrating to Montréal, and the life he might have lived had he remained in Egypt;
Wanderers, by Marco Micone and translated by Sheila Fischman, traces a teenage boy's visit to his ancestral village in Italy where his questions arouse disturbing memories and questions for his grandfather;
Joy Geen (See You Again) by John Ng, in which a Canadian family must decide whether or not to risk sheltering their Chinese Godsister who has entered the country illegally;
Entry Denied by Sugith Varughese, is a period drama about the attempt to prevent 376 Indian immigrants aboard the Komagata Maru from landing in Vancouver, 1914;
Couscous, by Guillaume Vigneault and translated by Jon Van Burek, explores the decisions a single mother must make when engaging in a new relationship with her daughter's soccer coach.
