About the Plays:

Where is Here? is the second 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 II contains six plays:
Novena, by Marie-Beath Badian, a play about a detached and estranged daughter's return home to say a Novena prayer for her father who is sick in the Philippines;
The Clothesline, by Donna Caruso, a fun and loving narration about three generations of Canadian women and their experiences far from the land of their birth;
Spring Arrival, by Marjorie Chan, returns a sick woman to the cultural misunderstandings of her first day in Toronto from Hong Kong to cheer up her daughter and patients in the hospital ward;
The Gift, by Marty Chan, a touching story behind the desperate attempt of a mother, who fled China during the Great Cultural Revolution, to pass down the family’s dumpling recipe to her daughter;
Say Ginger Ale, by Marcia Johnson, a play in which a Jamaican Canadian woman returns to her homeland and finds herself forced to rediscover the value of what she has left behind and confirm fundamental truths about immigrant life;
One Officer's Experiences, by Arthur J. Vaughan, the compassionate and humourous memoir of an immigration officer stationed at Halifax's Ocean terminal who greeted the arrival of immigrants for twenty years spanning the great post-war influx.
