Theatre in British Columbia (print) by Ginny Ratsoy and Ric Knowles

Volume 6 in the series Critical Perspectives in Canadian Theatre in English

"The composite that emerges from the collage of the eighteen articles herein is, as I have indicated, off-centre and complex. It is also celebratory of off-centredness and complexity—of the edginess of the British Columbia play/playwright/ theatre company. These articles acknowledge political, social, and performative borders and examine British Columbia theatre from perspectives which pay tribute to the flouting of arbitrarily imposed restrictions." —from the introduction
