Performing Back: Post-Colonial Canadian Plays

Edited by Dalbir Singh

Playwrights Canada Press

Performing Back 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 the 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.


Dalbir Singh is the associate editor of cultural diversity and the stage magazine. He's also the editor of World Without Walls: Being Human, Being Tamil from Marwani Press. His titles from Playwrights Canada Press include Performing Back: Post-Colonial Canadian Plays and Love, Loss, and Longing: South Asian Canadian Plays in addition to editing a forthcoming anthology of critical essays on Canadian Theatre. He is a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Toronto and has taught at the University of Waterloo, the University of Guelph, and the University of Toronto.
