Volume 3 in the series Critical Perspectives on Canadian Theatre in English.

"This book publishes what I take to be a representative sampling—by no means complete—of critical writings about [Judith Thompson's] plays, covering what might be regarded as the dominant critical tradition on her work, together with some new and exciting initiatives by younger scholars that respond to new (and exciting) directions in Thompson's own work." —from the Introduction
