The three plays in Julia Gray's brave new anthology catalyze and unleash the ethical dimensions of theatre. Derived from the Greek word "theatron,"theatre literally means "watching place" or "place of seeing." Drawing on key issues that North Americans--young and old--encounter, specifically, the overlapping stigmas associated with racism, ageism, and homophobia--ReView: an anthology of plays committed to social justice creates a powerful forum for public dialogue that has the potential to transform how we understand the world, how we treat others, and how we live with difference.

What lies at the core of the plays in this anthology is a quest towards social justice, honesty,and valuing one another for who we are. The three rich, poignant, and heartfelt plays also show a deep commitment to aesthetically weaving research and theatre-making. The respective artist-researchers have sifted through volumes of research data to artistically transform their insights into compelling and provocative plays.

An impressive collection of plays that stem from solid academic research and maintain high artistic standards. ReView manages the difficult balance ofmultidisciplinary collaboration, tackling sensitive topics professionally and delivering great theatre. The volume serves as an example for other cross-disciplinary research teams as well as a valuable pedagogical tool.
