Canada and the Theatre of War Volume One (print)

"...forgiveness and reconciliation, is what gives these plays their significance: regardless of their setting in home fronts, hospitals, dreamscapes, train stations, or psychological No Man's Lands, they address timeless issues of memory, history, trauma, and identity. Above all, these plays remind us of the ease with which conflict permeates national and cultural boundaries and the terrible persistence of ghosts. These plays are examples of a different kind of theatre because they take the theatre seriously and use the stages of live performance to show us who we were and might still be." —from the introduction
