Showing West: Three Prairie Docu-Dramas edited by Diane Bessai and Don Kerr


Regular price $14.95

Showing West is the best introduction to how the prairies imagined themselves in theatre during the 1970's. The history play, whether mythological or documentary, became theatre's most vital contribution to prairie culture in the decade, and both the plays and the essays of Showing West make it an indispensable record of that achievement.
