This book is the first to showcase the work of established and emerging Latina/o playwrights in Canada, charting the range and depth of Latina?/o Canadian theatre—its radical experimentations with form; its unflinching forays into histories of conquest, political oppression, and exile as told from intimate first-person perspectives; its community activism; and its dark humour. Each play is preceded by a critical introduction written by Latina/o theatre studies scholars from Canada and the US. With its companion essay collection, Latina/o Canadian Theatre and Performance, this anthology provides a core curriculum for courses focusing on Latina/o theatre, theatre in the Americas, political performance, or intercultural theatre in Canada.
