Take Five: The Morningside Dramas edited by Dave Carley
Every morning hundreds of thousands of Canadians tune into CBC Radio's flagship program, Morningside. This anthology brings to print five of the best dramas from the 1990-91 season.
The tall tales of Richardo Keens-Douglas' native Grenada come to vibrant life in his Once Upon an Island.
Timothy Findley has adapted three stories by Anton Chekhov, all dealing with fidelity gone drastically awry, in Love and Deception.
Arthur Millner's dry and witty The City examines the crashing ideals and practical considerations of the thirty-something set in their renovated big-city ghettos.
The Skid, by Thomas Lackey, displays the full potential of radio for evoking just about any environment and event- even the creation of the world!
Finally, Mary Burns has adapted her own tough and controversial stories on northern life in Yukon Quintette.
