Theatre in Alberta (print) by Anne Nothof and Ric Knowles

Volume 11 in the series Critical Perspectives on Canadian Theatre in English

“Contemporary theatre in Alberta performs the cultural diversity of the province, playing against stereotypes of drought-ridden farmers, uncultured cowboys, and oil magnates. The critical reception of Alberta theatre reflects this wide range, as is evident in this collection—from detailed historical perspectives to complex theoretical analyses. However, it has only just begun to survey the vibrant, growing performance scene in the province.” —from the introduction
