This is book number 2 in the Collection of Canadian Plays series.


The purpose of A Collection of Canadian Plays is to present to the Canadian public good plays which have received regional acclaim but not national publicity. We hope to achieve the widest possible dissemination of original Canadian plays, not only for those who may be interested in mounting their own productions, but also for those playgoers who may wish to recapture the pleasures of an evening well spent in the theatre.

In our current choice of plays, we have again attempted to introduce five entirely different writing styles and approaches.

The cover drawing is the tragic heroine of our first selection, Wedding in White.

This volume contains Wedding in White, by William Fruet; Three Short Plays: Some Are So Lucky; The Magnet; A Trip for Mrs. Taylor, by Hugh Garner; The Devil's Instrument, by W.O. Mitchell; Three Short Plays: The Pile; The Store; Inside Out by Mavor Moore; Westbound 12:01, by Brock Shoveller.

About the Author

Rolf Kalman moved to Montreal from Hungary in the early 1950's. He founded Simon & Pierre, a publishing company he named after his two cats, in 1972, which began as an offshoot from his days spent as an editor for Performing Arts magazine. Before that he worked at odd jobs around the CBC, mostly with televised theatre production. "(A Collection of Canadian Plays) is my gift to Canada. It's a gift in return for my Canadian citizenship."
