George Rideout

Raised in Texas, George Rideout moved to Thunder Bay, Ontario at the age of sixteen. He lived in several different provinces before settling for good in Québec. It is not surprising that most of his plays reflect his fascination with cross-cultural relationships, particularly as they exist in times of great social change. Those plays include Texas Boy (which has had more than thirty different productions), The Longstreth Line, Walking on the Moon, 689 Spadina Ave., The Austin Texas Twist Championship, The Tall Girl, and An Anglophone is Coming to Dinner. He is also the author of the mystery/thriller Dead Together which has earned praise from critics for its “blend of classic thriller conventions and social commentary.”
