Editorial Reviews


Although continuing to hit upon important personal, societal and political issues, so much social science these days 'embalms' the subject. The subject's essential vitality,movement and energy is all but lost in the ever increasing obsession and requirement to 'drill down', 'interpret', 'make-sense', 'theorize' and find meaning. Gray and her contributors do nothing of the sort. Instead, through their art they let the subject 'breathe' and speak for itself. The result is no less academic, no less insightful; in fact it is quite remarkable. Through the animations of three plays we experience the doing and happening of being a child of a queer family, of being a person with dementia or their family member, and of being involved in exclusion and violence as a young member of a racial minority.  Gray talks about difference in her introduction. For sure the three plays reinforce the idea that difference is about conscious comparison and quite deeply felt emotions and relationships. However, they also show us something more; that difference is simultaneously about physicality, agency and performance in places and the resulting forces which people are included in or excluded from. I fully recommend ReView to teachers and students seeking a lively and powerful entry point into social justice issues.

This is a stunning text. Issues that matter to all of us, explored by playwrights with directness,humor and openness.  Read it to learn, to be moved and to be entertained, all in one small package.  A gift for educators.
Jane Gaskell, Ed.D.

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.
Marlene Goldman, Ph.D.
Professor of Canadian Drama, University of Toronto

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.   
George Belliveau, Ph.D.
Professor of Theatre Education, University of British Columbia

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.
