Past Lives: Performing Canada's Histories

Edited by Heather Davis-Fisch

Playwrights Canada Press

A companion anthology to Canadian Performance Histories and Historiographies, Past Lives: Performing Canada’s Histories brings together plays that not only stage moments in Canada’s past but also act historiographically, generating new histories for the present moments at which they were written and performed.

This anthology represents a wide range of literary and performance practices—ranging from poetic tragedy, to radio drama, to Indigenous satire—and, because of its broad generic and historical scope, also serves as an excellent survey of Canadian dramatic literature from Confederation to the present.
